Pink Flamingo Sensory Bin


Our pink flamingo sensory bin is very hard to photograph. So bare with me as I post different angles of the bin. What's inside: rice, pink dyed barley, blue rice for water, plastic flamingo toothpicks, plastic palm trees and plastic flamingos that are from a lego set.

I cut the stick part off of the toothpicks and added some to the "water" so they could swim and some to the pink and white rice mixture.

A closeup of the different flamingos in our bin.

This sensory bin was inspired by the Book Maybe we are Flamingos by: Safari Sue Thuzman

"Flora and Fernando are the wrong color for flamingos. They wonder what they could be until they discover becoming pink can take a year, and staying pink is due to their diet. At last relieved, they draw funny pictures of how they might look if they ate broccoli or blueberries." Quoted from Here

Adorable book a must read!

Updated pic of what the bin looked like after an hour of play:)

Thanks for looking and please see my sidebar for all the great blogs I link up to:)

These pictures would do great in an I-Spy book!

Princess Pea's favourite animals at the zoo are the flamingos (no doubt because they're pink!). She'd flip over this bin!

This sounds like such a cute book. I love your sensory bin too. Aren't some things just hard to photograph! Although, I think they turned out great.
