This was our very first sensory bin. Chintu was 16 months old when we did this. I just added in some puzzle pieces into the sensory bin just to make him do both (• puzzle solving • sensory play).
What was in the sensory bin?
- tea dust
- green gram
Do you see all that mess – Messy play is fun, absolute fun. I just offered the sensory bin to him, and made sure not to say anything more to him. Make sure that the sensory bin you are offering is safe for the baby/toddler. You need to always stay beside the baby, if your baby is into mouthing phase then make sure there is no choking hazard. As I mentioned earlier Chintu was 16 months old when we did this, at that point – mouthing was comparatively less.
