I'll get a post up as soon as the kids get to bed. I cheated a bit on this one because I already had a fall sensory tub lined up for the girls, but when I got to looking at it, I realized it wouldn't be good for Bug, who is only 17 months. I decided to make another one just for him.

I used dried beans and pom poms, and scoops and bowls and cups and egg cartons for him to poor and sort with. He loved it, and after a while the girls abandoned their tub to come down on the floor and play with his! After nap, he wanted me to get it all out again. New favorite toy?

Glad to see you're still playing Connie! I know this is harder with a littler one. But you're doing good and knowing what this is all about - Play!

Stepping outside your comfort zone? eh? It kind of is for me too. I never know what to put in them. It looks like you came up with some good stuff (shredded paper is an awesome idea btw).

The sensory tub I created is similar to Anna's. I had some colored pasta and pom poms and I mixed those up. I also included a sand shovel, egg carton, and some plastic baby food jars, and tongs. My two year old liked to take the tongs to pick up the pom poms and my 10 month old wanted to eat the pasta. Which he has almost choked on before. So the sensory thing was kinda of hard for him to get involved.  But my two year old seemed to enjoy and even came back to the sensory box once or twice.

It's good to know I'm not the only one that has a hard time with sensory bins!  I sucked it up and the kids had fun.  That's what's important, right?
