Animals of Africa sensory bin / playset

I have always loved sensory bins (although I don’t think I ever called them that). My boys love playing with new textures and items. For this bin I used a cardboard seperator to pour in different colored beans/leaves to represent different habitats in Africa.

You could always use a plastic bowl too. For younger kids you can just present like this with the  Schleich African animals.
