edible sensory sand bin

Cereal Sand Sensory Bin

This summer, we're all about making our lives easier. That's why we're loving this cereal sand sensory bin idea.

It's simple: just blend your cereal of choice (make sure its low sugar so it doesn't get sticky) in a blender, add blended cereal 'sand' to bin with toys, and let your kiddo play! We did this outside to avoid cleanup which is my least favourite part of fun summer activities.

If you're anything like me, you've been eyeing all these fun sensory bin ideas for your little one but your kiddo is a 'put everything into their mouth' kinda baby. Well, this is your chance to try it out—and make sure it's safe for them too!

We know that this isn't the best way to avoid this type of behaviour forever—but it does give us an activity where we can allow them to explore without any intervention. And if you're looking for a way to keep your toddler busy while you gets some work done (or even just relaxes on the deck), it's totally worth trying out!
