Winter Themed Toddler Sensory Bin





After the total success of our fall themed sensory bin, I knew I had to do a winter themed sensory bin too. Henry just has so much fun with these bins. It turned out a little more Christmasy than wintery, but I think it works! If you're thinking about creating a winter sensory bin, make sure to check out my tips for sensory play post! Here's what's in our bin: 




Cotton Balls: These are the main component of the bin. Snow, anyone? 
Snowman Ribbon: I cut these into varying lengths of snowmen between 1-5, so we can count them snowmen together. 
Pom-Poms: Just regular pom-poms in Christmas-ish colors
Mini Bows: Cute and perfect for little hands
Spikey Balls: Little plastic bouncy-type balls I got at the dollar section of Walmart. They add a little harder texture that the bin needed.
Erasers: Also a the dollar section find, these are bigger than our usual erasers so I like them a lot. Again they add a harder texture and some good color.
Snowflake Confetti: These were just pretty! 
Jingle Bells: I figured since everything else in the bin was quiet that we needed something to stimulate the sense of sound 
I'm going to introduce it this coming week at tot school. Hopefully, Henry likes it! Anyone else create a bin for winter/Christmas? Link up your post in the comments, I would love to check it out!

I don't have a sensory bin of my own to share, but I would love for you to share this at my Season's Best {Christmas} Link-Up. Many of the posts are geared towards toddlers, and this is fantastic. I will have to do this with my boys in the coming weeks. Thanks for sharing!

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be

Our Family's Montessori Christmas Gift Lists 2021

It's hard to believe another holiday season is upon us again. Every year I enjoy putting together my kids' Christmas gift lists. It's really a good time to observe them, see what they are interested in and what they might be ready for during this coming year. It's one of the few times a year that I purchase new materials for our home so it's always really exciting. IF YOU NEED MORE IDEAS DON'T MISS MY ULTIMATE MONTESSORI TOY LIST OR MY 2021 DEALS PAGE ! When considering these lists, please remember that these were curated based on my own children. Use them for inspiration but they are heavily influenced by what my children are into and interested in.
