Putting our Christmas tree up this weekend totally put me in the Christmas Spirit, so on Sunday, I went through my holiday boxes and bins and pulled together our winter Sensory Bin.

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.winter sensory bin

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 gave them some scoops and some Apothecary jars, and I overheard them playing “Candy Shop”, filling the jars with glittery goodness. 

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?

Yours in play, Jackie from Happy Hooligans
