12 Creative and Cute Sensory Bin Ideas

I’ve seen tons of cute, fun, and sometimes extravagent ideas for sensory bins flying around the blogosphere and Pinterest, but have yet to venture into making any for my own kids. But, I love the idea of them, and think they would be a great way to keep my kids entertained while I’m working or getting stuff done around the house.

So, I rounded up a few of my favorite ideas for fun, but not too complicated sensory bins.
