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.
For the water I had cut down a tin container but if you do that make sure you soften the edges or cover with tape so they aren’t sharp! You could always use a plastic bowl too. For younger kids you can just present like this with the Schleich African animals.
(Disclosure: We were sent some animals by Schleich but not compensated in any other way to post. We’ve loved them long before we ever had a blog! All opinions are our own.)
