Cattail sensory bin

I am one of them people who can play with cattails for ever and never get bored. Thankfully my kids are too. So on our latest nature walk we grab some to bring home and play with. Cattail is a plant that creates a lot of seeds. You would be surprised by how much one can make. So we collected some nature creatures and threw them in the bin. The kids had fun taking off all the seeds and playing. Just one thing I suggest is keep this as a outdoor thing! I still have seeds blowing everywhere. After the bin was done we took it outside to play with out there. Totally worth the mess, it was a lot of fun.

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!
