Brody is super into trucks, dirt and digging and I love a good DIY project, so this sensory bin  was a must make!  Are you not sure what a sensory bin is? They are little boxes/bins full of unique materials to help kids learn about the world around them. These boxes let kids explore all different things with their senses. Think wet, dirty, cotton, rocks, animals .. you name it!  A sensory box could be a great idea for your wild child who has trouble focusing or sitting still. Try this one out if your little one loves sand and trucks!

Make sure you follow me on instagram so you never miss a thing!

What you need:

  • a box
  • play sand
  • rocks/beads
  • toy trucks
  • Tupperware for a pool
  • animals * optional

Add your sand ( we used about 25 lbs ) rocks/beads and pool. Next grab some trucks and let your little one lead the way! After a while playing we added the dinosaurs which made him play even longer!

 

We also made a small bin for inside that is made from beans! I added some animals , a funnel, a spoon and a little scooper. I was so surprised at how much Brody loves this one! I like to take this bin out while I’m making meals.
