Christmas Sensory Bin for Babies

Pin It

Using mostly Christmas decorations I already had on hand, I put together a very simple sensory bin for B, my 15 month old. He was so delighted with simple bucket of Christmas goodies!

It included
*Small shatterproof bulbs
*bows of different sizes
*large jingle bells
*small "presents" which are just wrapped foam blocks
*tinsel (bought at the dollar store)

He loved this!

Though these objects were chosen because of their lesser chance of being choking hazards, you should always watch babies and younger children with vigilance when playing with sensory bins and material, and use discretion when choosing your own materials based on your child's age and developmental ability.

  1. Hi Jessie, I came across your site a few months ago and I've been visiting it every day since-it is outstanding! Thank you for sharing your creative ideas in such a concise and organized fashion. I have a couple of questions, I have two kids about the same age as yours (Bruce- 3.5 and Batsheva 16 mo.) and was wondering how do you organize/structure the day and balance their different schedules and developmental needs- especially during these art activities? Also, as far as the bath activities- are you doing these during their normal bathtime? How do you get them clean with colored water, paint and shaving cream all over the place?! Finally, can you recommend some great toys that are fun and foster creativity- especially for the 16 mo old.... (we already have the typicalstuff- lots of cars, trains, basic legos and blocks, dolls, clay-dough etc.... )

    Thank you for your time and keep up the great work- I wish we could join your art group and outdoor playgroup but we live in NYC!


Thanks for visiting Play Create Explore! I love hearing from ya'll!
