That looks like a lot of fun. I like this idea better than the one I've been using: my daughter, 2-3 bowls a few cups and a ton of beans. It just gets too messy (even with a sheet under her). But maybe if I did it the way you did it would be more contained.
I started with a shoe box sized bin. It was a total mess. I think he just didn't have enough room to explore. This seemed to work much better.
That big size does look about perfect!
thats super cute :) does he go to pre-k yet?

I've so been meaning to do something like this with my boys...I've heard that cereal is great because you don't have to worry about the kids eating it but it still feels cool sensory-wise.Thanks for the reminder and adorable proof that this is really something I need to do with my kids :)
When my daughter was young, we used to go to a place in Pittsburgh Pa, that had all kinds of sensory things. Lots of fun and learning for the kids.
Great idea. I will have to do this for Carsyn.
LOve the idea of a bigger play bin!
He's so cute, Amy!

He looks like he is very much into the sensory touching that he is not aware of the camera. I love the size of your bin. I need to fill one for Little Bug and Pooh Bear. Happy Veterans Day.
I always say that every moment is a chance to teach and learn. I love this idea Amy. Your such a great mom!

Cute picture! I have been meaning to do this for my 2-yr old forever!
