We love sensory bins over here.  They are great for learning and exploring our senses and mostly just plain fun.  We make a majority of our sensory bins in the plastic containers you can buy at Walmart.  However, you can turn everyday toys into sensory bins too.  That is just what I did with our wheelbarrow.  It was a big hit with my boys.

What I used:  
 
Little Tikes wheelbarrow, birdseed, small containers, and the toys that came with their wheelbarrow.  Oh, I forgot we added a few plastic carrots and foam ones too we had.

What I did:  

Simply filled the wheelbarrow with birdseed and now they had a new sensory bin to play in.  My boys love playing in birdseed and I think the birds and squirrels do too.

They had a blast scooping and pouring the birdseed which is great for motor skills and hand eye coordination.   They got to explore through touch, sight, smell, and sound.  I told them not to eat it even though it probably wouldn’t hurt them if they did put a little in their mouth.  This is very messy as you can see.  The deck was covered in birdseed.  I expect that.  This is not our first or last time playing in a sensory bin full of birdseed.  It is often a go to activity over here.
