bean sensory bin for valentines day

Today is the first time we used beans in a sensory bin, totally worth it!
We made this bin using red and white beans for valentines day. It was really fun, my kids loved it. They poured them, measured them, and sorted through them by color. 
In the end they added more toys and played with the beans as if they where rocks. 
Beans is one sensory bin filler you can use over and over and is cheap to buy so next time you pass by them pick some up!
This is one of many ideas going around the 31 Days of Sensory Play!

Valentines day sensory bin for all ages!

Sensory bins are something you can really make for any age and to fit into any budget. Mine was made for my own kids (ages 6&7) and made from items bought at my local dollar store. A sensory bin is a bin that engages some if not all of the 5 senses. Mine did not include scent or taste but was followed up by Valentines day candy as a treat. Now that my kids are no longer toddlers but still love these bins I try to include things I can use later on for different crafts or decorating. So for this bin I added heart shaped buckets, shredded paper, stickers, necklaces, Valentines day clothes pins, and a heart shaped bell door hanger. Recently I have noticed my kids enjoy adding other toys to play time and I love that. Seeing what they come up with and hearing the stories change as they grow is pretty neat to see. Anyway I hope this inspires you to try a sensory bin out with your baby/toddler/or child, and have a good rest of your morning, evening or night! Bye!
