What do you think about when you think of summer? I think of hot weather, cool pools, active oceans, sandy beaches, pretty flowers, warm sunshine, and sticking my toes in the backyard grass. So when creating a Summer Season Sensory Bin for my little one, I wanted to encompass all of these things…If we can’t have summer in March, why not bring summer to us, right?
I started with my Boon Lawn Drying Rack from Target (which I love) and a flower accessory for it.
Then I added my own flowers: a couple made from old bottle brushes which stood up perfectly in the grass and the other one was simply made from a popsicle stick and a flattened muffin cup liner!
Our sunshine was made from a cut up pool noodle and some orange straws – genius, right? Plus we added a homemade thermometer to show that the heat is intense during the summer season!
Finally, our ocean consists of seashells, a boat, and some sea-life from our bathtub. If I had sand on hand I would’ve added that too!
