spring sensory bin...my worst choice ever

Pin It

it's been spring for about a week now, so that means a spring sensory bin is in order
no fake plastic-clingy grass like i crazily did here...
no, this year, i thought i'd do something even meSSieR than that...
**grimacing**

i found this cute colored coNFeTTi in the Easter section at Wal-Mart and paired it with some split peas and green rice.  we also tossed in some springy erasers, small bitty eggs, and flower beads from the dollar store and the Target 1 spot. 

Bear had/has soooo much fun with it, and i'll admit that i do too.  it's really cool to watch it all fall...

or have it come out of the "cement chute"...

we also did a huNT for the small eggs by the top pink arrow.  and then we "picked" flowers (the bead by the lower pink arrow).

the only pRoBLeM?  is that this is what the floor looked like x5.  this is only after a few minutes....

now, before you start thinking of how retentive i am, i have to say this...
the motto in our house is
if you're not making a mess, you aren't having enough fun

i welcome exploration at the cost of having a clutter-free home.  stop by anytime and you'll see what i mean. 

but this confetti...ohhhh, this confetti... all in the living area.... stuck to the couch, the bottoms of feet.  we had a trail down the hall towards the bathroom and bedrooms that Hansel and Gretel would've been proud of.  likely the worst choice for a sensory bin...

but, i've been blessed with a little boy who loves to clean... especially when it comes to using our little hard floor vacuum.  when he was done, he went to the closet, got it out and asked me to plug it in.  then he cleaned it all up = happy, proud momma!
