Does your little one touch, taste, or smell anything she comes into contact with? Don't worry! This is simply how kids learn about the world around them. But there are probably a few objects you'd prefer they stay away from. To give them the same experience without damaging your own items, try building a sensory bin. These activity spaces are a fun way for toddlers to develop their senses, hone their motor skills, and utilize their imagination. The best part: they are supereasy to make! From rainbow-themed tubs to seasonal bins, your little one will love these 11 DIY [1] sensory bins.
