I love Counting Coconuts’ sensory bins, but there is no way that my 15 month old would keep all those tiny things out of his mouth. And since Bear has interest in sensory bins for all of five minutes I can’t justify spending the time to put together such beautiful bins. However, sensory experiences are an important part of a child’s development so I look for ways to address that need in very quick ways. Here J-jo (and might I add that Bear also joined in for approximately 5 minutes) enjoys a colorful cotton ball sensory experience.
He completed this experience by trying to push the cotton balls into his favorite oatmeal canister.
