We love sensory exploration and these bins are perfect for just that.  By creating these small scenes for kids to dig into is a fun way for them to discover new things.  You can also bring their favorite things to life, like the construction bin or ocean bin we list below.

We’re sharing lots of fun sensory activities today, inspired by The Chaos and the Clutter.
