My Etsy shop is live! A lot of people ask me about the sensory bins and bottles I use with the babies so I decided it would be fun to make all our learning material available to others. When I was teaching I made most of the library centers I used with my students and I have been having so much fun making bottles and bins for the babies. My new shop is called WePlayAllDay:
It's still drab and cold here in Boston and hasn't quite felt like spring yet so I put together this fun spring flowers sensory bin to try to bring some spring to our house. This sensory bin is simple and with the exception of a few items we had around the house, it's all from the dollar store!
After visiting a local children's museum and watching the babies play with all kinds of sensory exhibits, I wanted to start making the babies a few sensory bins of our own. I decided to start with rainbow rice because it seemed fun and Baby A has been especially interested in pouring things from one cup to another, which would be a perfect thing to do with rice.
Being a teacher before having babies has made me really aware of kids' sensory needs. Sensory play is really important for babies and kids. Touch and feel is how as infants and toddlers learn about the world. As the babies grew and became more and more interested in the world around them, I decided I wanted to make them sensory boards.
