Bean Bin Hide and Seek

Lately I’ve been making more of an effort to have Trevor to play in his sensory bins.  The experience really does help calm and regulate him.  With Paige’s birth I definitely was slacking with his sensory diet and it showed.  With organizing the playroom, getting his sensory materials in order was the first order of business.  His sensory bins are more accessible now and he’s really taken a new interest in them.  And the results of this increase in sensory play are wonderful 🙂

He’s been having a lot of fun playing Hide & Seek with his bean bin.  We use a bunch of little character toys (Toy Story, Mickey and Friends, etc.) that I picked up at the Dollar Tree.  We bury them under the beans and then he finds them.  He thinks it’s hilarious if I sing about his toys to the tune of “Oh Where, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?” (Oh Where, oh where has Mickey gone, oh where, oh where could he be?) when he digs for them.
