We've been spending so many of our afternoons just lounging in the yard. On this warm sunny spring day I eyed my big bag of birdseed in the garage and thought it would make a neat sensory bin material that we haven't tried before, so I dumped it in a big bucket and gave L a bunch of containers and utensils to play with.
I even put B (7 months) in the bucket to see what he would do! I loomed over him like a hawk in case he scooped up a handful to put in his mouth, and he did try a few times, but eventually he stopped trying and was fascinated by the way the birdseed flowed through his fingers everytime he grabbed some. He also loved pushing his little toes into it.
With great vigilance, some sensory bins are entirely possible at this age!
