Mom was feeling guilty about the amount of time the tv was on, even despite the fact that we watched mostly nice, vaguely educational things for kids and not just slasher films and infomercials. So, inspired by various sources on the internet, she decided to spend 2012 exploring more activities appropriate for growing baby men. And she knew you'd want to see the results...
Today's activity was inspired by Play at Home Mom, a blog Mom was recently introduced to. She decided that one of Austin's Christmas presents should be a sensory bin. She went to the hardware store and got a largish, clear plastic bin and a big blue tarp. And this is what she did:
Behold, a garden of shredded paper, paper bags, tin foil, plastic cups, paper tubes, tupperware and spoons.
This is such a great idea. I can think of so many cool things to put in there for him, and it would also be great for fingerpainting or other crafts.
And clearly, Mr. Austin approves.
