I wanted to share another sensory tubs, it seems as though you all enjoy them. Maybe as much as I enjoy putting them together!
My Dad recently gave me two huge bags of oatmeal, and I do mean huge. I divided them all out in gallon Ziploc bags passed some out to family and put the rest in my deep freeze. But, I kept one out because I realized after digging my hands into the oatmeal it would be a really awesome sensory base!
Elliette totally agreed!
So, with her watching over me I built her a new sensory bin and decided to go with a Valentine’s Day theme because we had just pulled out our Valentine’s decor and Ellie was getting excited about the various crafts and Valentine’s we could make.
If I were selling this one, as I have sold a few others, I would consider dyeing the oatmeal. But, because it’s my girl and she was super duper anxious about playing in the oatmeal I decided not to mess with the process of dyeing the oats.
A lot of the things in this bin are all things I grabbed from our already overflowing sensory supplies. Ellie’s favorites so far have been the funnel and the chopsticks. She also really enjoys the “jingle bells” that I added.
This bin kept her busy for well over an hour and she really only stopped because Daddy was home and it was time for supper!
