  2. Love this idea! Where did you get that cute little skunk?

      Thanks, Amanda! I got it at a local school supply store called The Learning Post. Perhaps you could find it on Amazon?

    I love your sensory bin, Angela! Great idea to make pattern cards to go with it! Thanks so much for sharing your free pattern cards. I featured your post as the Free Printable of the Day at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page (and will feature it on my Free Printable of the Day Pinterest board once Pinterest is back up).

    love this sensory bin. I try to spend as little as possible, but I think I might “splurge” on the plastic apples too. You’re right they would be used over and over so why not. Pinning This

  6. I think oats must feel and smell amazing, that looks like a great sensory activity.

    I love how you set up the invitation to play. I also how you put the bin together. Ca you tell me what size it is. I have been using a shoe size type box lately for space reasons, but think a bit bigger might be better. Your looks bigger, but not too big. So, I am curious what actual bin you are using. If you could let me know by emailing me or leaving a comment at, I’d appreciate it. I also put together an apple bin recently –

      Hi, Martianne! I apologize for taking so long to write back to your comment. The size is 12 quarts. I think it is a perfect size. Hope that helps!
