Just before the holidays I put together a space sensory bin for A, he hasn't used it much and we'll be continuing our space studies over the next few weeks so I'll be leaving this one together for a while.
The base is made up of black beans. We have a huge box of plastic beads that came from a garage sale or something so I sorted out some of the yellow, gold, white, glow in the dark, and a few stars to mix in with the beans.
A spent one quiet time sorting all of the beads from the beans and then sorting them by color.
Buzz Lightyear action figure and spaceship. We actually have a smaller Buzz that fits in the spaceship, but I can't find him of course.
