We made a new sensory bin last week. It was a whole bunch of dried beans in a box and I gave Gideon measuring spoons and his stacking cups. He went to town. He really loves this one. So much so that we bust it out at least every other day. And you see that white shower curtain under him...Yeah that was my brilliant friend Elaine's idea. It's awesome because it doesn't matter how big of a mess he makes. I can just lift up the shower curtain and dump the beans back in the container. Like I said....BRILLIANT!!
I must say these bin ideas are keeping me sane. It is SO COLD outside. I'm trying so hard to keep Gideon well because surgery is just 6 days away so we haven't been going outside too much. And honestly, I'm trying to keep us in a little bubble right now. You wouldn't believe how many play dates have been cancelled because of sick kids. It's a total bummer! I miss my friends and their kiddos! But I realize this is just a season and it won't be this way forever. Hope you are all staying warm!
