Ever since the whole Pinterest thing started…I’ve been in L (dot) O (dot) V (dot) E (dot) with sensory bins!!!!  I try to make a new one for V every month, and usually there is a holiday rolling around that you can coincide with bins, most of the months.  My favorite sensory bin I’ve made so far, for her, has to be this one, the “spring sensory bin”.  The colors are amazing (YAY for kool-aid!)!  I gave her little flowers and a watering can (for planting :), along with some plastic eggs leftover from Easter (she likes to fill them up & shake them – mini maracas – YAY!! :) , and some shovels I borrowed from her sand toys.  All the items I usually get for sensory bins I usually find at the dollar store or similar.

Most everything I dye, kid related; rice, pasta, playdoh, it is all with kool-aid.  I came up with the measurements after some experimenting in what worked (I’m still trying to fine tune the pasta kool-aid dyeing, but the rice & the playdoh I have down to a science!)  See here on how to dye the rice with kool-aid.
