It’s no secret that I love a good sensory bin because they are such an easy way to let your child’s imagination run wild. I have a few up my sleeve for this year so don’t be surprised if you see a few happening here because like I said, they are just so easy to throw together and the perfect activity for toddlers to learn through play.
We love coffee in this house which y’all know…well, I love coffee. My husband doesn’t understand my undying love for it. My kids have grown to love Starbucks just as much as their mama so I had to throw together this super cute coffee sensory bin. I did coffee beans, which who knew they’d be so hard to track down, as the base of the sensory bin.
Added in some old creamer bottles that I washed out really well and of course, can’t forget the Starbucks hot cup!
The kids absolutely love doing sensory bins and this was a fun one because they recognized mama’s coffee instantly and of course wanted to know where their cake pops were. We got to talk about cause and effect from pouring the coffee beans in and out of the creamer bottle along with measuring using the spoons from their last sensory bin.
My favorite time with them is the time we take to talk and learn through play. My parenting style has certainly changed so much over the last few years and the Montessori approach has taught me so much about allowing them to learn on their own and to also use every moment as a teaching moment.
