We are continuing with our Kids being Thankful posts that I started last week. If you miss that post you can check it out here. I decided this year that instead of doing the 30 days of Thankfulness myself I would turn the tables and have my kids do it. The simpleness of the things they are thankful for have really opened my eye’s to the world and what I really do have to be thankful for, 2 kids that don’t care about money or things but that they are safe and happy.
For the past several years I have done the 30 days of Thankfulness. It has been a good challenge and if I am honest, it does challenge me most days. I think we can all kind of get in a rut and forget how much we have to be thankful for. This year I decided to get my kids involved. I figure, you can never start to young with being thankful.
Well, it seems that I am on a roll of doing a new sensory bin every week! This week it will seem odd at first but I promise to have a point to it! My goal again with this bin was to make it as cheap as I possibly could. I had to buy the filler for this but I found it at the $1 store.
While I was planning our study of the letter C, for school, I started to think about what I could do for sensory bin. I came up with with Construction site bin. Now, I am sure if you search pinterest for sensory bins you can find some for construction sites but this is the one I came up with that cost me nothing. I already had everything I needed here in my house!
Sensory bins seem to be all the rage lately. You see them all over pinterest and hear moms talking about them at the park. I have seen really impressive and elaborate ones and then there are simple ones like the one I made for my kids last night. It is a simple one with ABC’s to fit the lessons we have coming up this week in school.
