Winter Wonderland Sensory Bin

This sensory bin is kind of similar to our Christmas Sensory Bin, it does have more sensory elements to it though. The "bin" is again a cool bowl from Dollar Tree, but this time it's red instead of green. All the things in the bowl can also be found at Dollar Tree.

The base material was a thing of white garland/tinsel that had candy canes on it. Then I added ornament balls, ornaments of houses with snow covering them, a red bow, and some silver jingle bells.

That's how ours looked when I presented it to my little one. I said that it has more sensory elements to it because not only is there the interesting garland to feel, and the ornaments to explore, there's a felt bow to rub and discuss what it feels like. The jingle bells also provide some sound to the sensory experience. The more senses you can use at once the better the activity!
