From the Back Cover

Sensory play is important to children?s development, and Mandisa Watts?s creative sensory bins are the perfect way for parents and caregivers to interact with toddlers and preschoolers in fun, engaging ways. With endless options for variations, sensory bins are large tubs or bins that are filled with a variety of materials?such as rice, paper, water, toys, and foliage?for children to poke, prod, squish, and squeeze. Water sensory bins are the perfect activity for a warm summer afternoon, and kids are sure to love bins like Silly String Water Worms and Arctic Ice Castles. Are the kids bored of some of their once beloved toys? Introduce those toys back into playtime in fun new ways in bins like Shiny Puzzle Hunt and Lego House Painting. You can even use materials found in your pantry to make a Green Pea Smash bin or a Cookie Cutter Painting bin. A wide variety of exciting activities mean that there?s a bin for toddlers and preschoolers of all ages?and many bins will be engaging and entertaining for everybody from an 15-month-old to kids on the verge of entering kindergarten. This book has 60 projects and 60 photos. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clearly laid out instructions to make your own sensory bins
Reviewed in the United States on December 11, 2020
Sensory play is a crowd pleasing activity in our family—our kids get to dive into their creative worlds & happy kids means happy parents—so I excitedly read this book for some more inspirational ideas for future bins.

I love how well organized the instructions and tips were, from materials needed, to chapters divided by themes (Amazing Animals, Incredible Pretend Play, Easy Rice Bins, Simple Steam, etc.). My favorite themes are the “Brilliant Book-Based Bins” & “Exciting Seasonal & Holiday” themed bins. So fun and festive!

Each activity comes with an age recommendation (most are 18 months+), setup time, materials needed, useful tips, and clear step by step instructions (from setup, play, to what to discuss).

Fun fact:

Did you know that sensory play supports childrens’ cognitive growth, language development, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction? Combining the sense of touch with the sense of vision, hearing, taste, and smell help build nerve connections in the brain’s pathways to build cognitive skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for independent play!
Reviewed in the United States on January 9, 2021
We bought this book to provide different types of play for my 2.5 year old toddler. The book is filled with various ideas with easily accessible material. Clear directions are provided and I was able to use things that are already in my home. My daughter loves Octonauts so we created an ocean sensory bib with blue salt and sea creatures. We paired the corn sensory bin with out barn and animals in which my toddler played independently for over an hour. This book is a wonderful addition to our home and I highly recommend it.
