My grandson's educator and sensory therapist both recommended a sensory bin. After some pinterest searching, I went digging through my pantry and school supply drawers. Here's what I came up with.
The neon colored gummy looking things were pencil/pen grips that were buried in the school supply drawer. Not too bad for a first try. The boys liked playing with it.
Now for a trip to the dollar store! I found tons of links with wonderful ideas for other bins.
