real lavender relaxing bin

At the end of some busy days my kids need something to help relax and calm down for the night. This time I used real lavender, put it in a bin and put some different toys to play with.
This is two different bins I used last night.

My kids also loved pouring it back and fourth. 
For this I let them pick up and try different sea shells to scoop and pour. 

Smelled amazing and was very cool to see my kids explore this new sensory bin filler~

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!
