- 41 Qt, Clear Sensory Bin (Large)
- Plastic Fillable Christmas Baubles
- Various size jars

I added water to the mix because my daughter asked for it. It’s not absolutely necessary, but it was more fun with water!
I only added about an inch of water just enough to cover everything.
My three year old loved this bin and immediately started to fill the jars and Christmas baubles with pom poms, Christmas jingle bells and caps using the handy scoopers. The handy scoopers added a fine motor skill element to this sensory bin, giving my preschooler lots of opportunity work on developing those important muscles.

I loved how my preschooler started to pretended that she was storing food for the winter like a little squirrel.
We had recently read the adorable book But No Elephants by Jerry Smath where the grandmother in the book cans food for the winter. She then started to pretend that she was canning food for us for the winter.
