M2 (18 months) is super busy right now and it can be very difficult to keep a close eye on her while we are doing school work for M1 - 4 yrs
Sensory bins save the day but the mess can sometimes can be out of control! We cannot wait for the weather to warm up to play with things outside rather than in the house!
She really enjoys the simple sensory bins things like:
Rice - Colored is especially fun
Basically anything you can pour, dump, pile or send through a funnel!
My solution to the mess?
the biggest vinyl shower curtain or table cloth you can find!
It works great!
