I used white rice for the base, and tossed in some green and white buttons, a few glass beads, a handful of cotton balls and some red beaded-garlandy-stuff. Then I went to my Christmas tree, removed some of my least-treasured ornaments, and popped them into the bin as well.
The Hooligans discovered the bin shortly after they arrived this morning (I’d hidden it behind a chair because I wanted to surprise them with it), and they looooved it. They played with it for a good chunk of the morning, and then off and on again in the afternoon.
I just realized I don’t have a Santa in there. I guess I’d better go back to my tree and see what I can do about that!
What’s in your sensory bin this month?
