I follow a lot of homeschool blogs. I look to get ideas on things I want to do with my son. One idea that we decided to try was a "mud" sensory bin. My son is totally into bugs and insects. He has lots of plastic toy bugs that I picked up at the thrift shop. So when I saw this blog post about a mud sensory bin, I knew he would like it. It also helped that we were studying insects using Amanda Bennett's unit study "Incredible Insects". Below are some pictures of our bin. The blog it came from was teachingmama.org. The "mud" was really easy. It was just baking soda, food coloring, and water.
