Christmas sensory bin

Ellie is 12 months old

This was our first real sensory bin. I threw together some things we had around the house and introduced it at the beginning of December. She loved it and asked for it every single day. Her favorite activities this month were finding all the jingle bells, playing with the snowman figurine, crunching the bows in her hands and pulling everything out of the bin and putting it all back in again.

I was thrilled with her engagement and excitement over this bin. I'm definitely planning on doing one a month from now on.

Pointing out the snowman's nose (Do you see the vacuum in the background? It's a rare find in our house!)

Finding a bell!

The bin included: Christmas bows, floral picks (from Hobby Lobby; there were crystals, white balls and silver balls), beaded balls, some soft ornaments, a sparkly plastic ornament, snowman Santa figurine, jingle bells.
