February Sensory Bin and Play Dough

Valentines Day Sensory Bin

I added red and white kidney beans, pipe cleaner hearts, foam hearts, heart gems, pink rose petals, red pompoms, scoop and small pink tin lunch box to our valentine sensory bin.
Jada loves this bin so much she eats the beans! it's a common problem right now. I know taste is sensory but come on dried beans???

We are talking all about love and friendship for the month of February. We have a lot of exciting things planned!

This months play dough was inspired by hot cinnamon hearts. I recycled our January play dough because it only got used once or twice. I added the food coloring and it gave it a marbleized look. I love how it turned out! Again Jada eats it...

You can see the pretty sparkles a bit better now that the dough is red
Thanks for looking

Thanks! I finally did a dinosaur bin using rice and my 2 year old LOVES it! He and his little friend played in it for 30 minutes today while his mommy and I crafted! It was awesome! Thanks for the great ideas, I will be doing a Valentine's Day one, too!! :)

What fun! My daughter would eat it all too! When I was making play-dough for her preschool, she ate as we went. *sigh* Luckily it still turned out okay!
