For the base material I used a bag of split peas. They can be found at the grocery store by the beans. Then for the red I added four red blocks. I really like the way there's not only the red and the green, but there's also the squares and the circles in this bin.

Red & Green Complimentary Colors Sensory Bin
Once children know their basic colors I think it's important to start introducing concepts such as complimentary colors. Red and green of course are familiar complimentary colors. I didn't do this bin around Christmas time, but it easily could be a fun addition for babies and younger toddlers to explore some of the holiday colors around that time as well. I think it's so cute of a bin that really promotes abstract thinking.
