My son has been bugging me to play with cotton balls recently. He is a hands on learner that loves getting messy, so this is one of his favorite things to play with. We put one bin full of water and one full of cotton balls on the floor and just let him explore with them. His sister did join in and brought some droppers and cups along.

I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
