Christmas Tinsel and Bows Sensory Bin

Day 13 of 25 Days of Christmas Play
I wanted to put together a sensory bin for the babies on a day that my nephew would be with us.  I knew this is something that him and Baby Girl would love playing in. 
This sensory play bin was so easy and quick to throw together.  

The babies loved playing in this.  They had a fun time taking the cookie cutters out and then putting them back in over and over (and over) again!

 Be sure to keep an eye on the kids with this sensory bin!
This was such an easy and entertaining activity.  Perfect for a little pre-nap play!
Stop by tomorrow, we have a great salt dough recipe that we’ve been working on!  Have you seen the
25 Days of Christmas Play series? You’ll find lots of fun ideas!
