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.

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