One of my favorite things to make for my kids definitely has to be sensory bins. Not only does it give my little ones something fun to play with, but sensory bins are so helpful for your child’s development. For this summer I thought I’d try something new and make them an Ocean Sand Sensory Bin and they absolutely loved it! Let me know in the comments how your Ocean Sand turned out!
