sensory play

It had been far too long since our sensory tub was filled with anything. Of the many we had made, the "Under the Sea" themed bin was always a favorite. It is so simple, yet provides us with hours of play. 

This time around, Logan was able to help with gathering and assembling. She is so helpful in everything we do. She is so observant. She is flexible and kind. And she is so, so silly. She amazes me everyday.

I love to just sit back and watch her play.

Lo and I have been brainstorming for other "worlds" to create-- I can't wait to see what ideas she comes up with.


  1. i love this! i have been thinking of ways to introduce my little one to more sensory play... right now her favorite thing to do is add twigs, leaves, grass, and dirt to the small kiddie pool outside. this is a heck of a lot prettier, and more feasible for inside play :)

    1. that's so great, too.
      i love nature's toys! ;)

      my daughter is all about a n y t h i n g sticks, rocks, dirt, and leaves. she would loveeeee that for sure.

      i recently thought about using her water table for such a thing. you have just inspired me, so thank you!

  2. We love sensory play! I haven't put anything in our sensory tub in some time, either. I should probably change that.

    This is an awesome sensory bin!

  3. Great idea, there isn't enough of this these days. Play dates should carve out time for sensory play.

  4. Looks like so much to be had!! Thanks for sharing this with us at Eco-Kids Tuesday. If you haven't already, I invite you to come link up with us again! http://likemamalikedaughter.blogspot.com/2013/07/eco-kids-tuesday_23.html
