Bins are available for pickup in Pickering, or you can schedule a porch drop-off to your home in the Durham region. Keep your eyes peeled for free drop-off offers!
All orders will be fulfilled in the week following your order.
Sensory activities bins can be fun for many ages, but are ideal for ages 3 to 7ish. Please be aware that bins may contain small pieces such as rocks and marbles that are potential choking hazards for our smallest children.
Nope! One of the best parts of sensory bins is that they are excellent options for independent play time, and they are generally a very calming activity. I always suggest allowing kids to initially take charge with their bins. Let their imaginations run wild!
Luckily, every bin is also an opportunity to extend learning. The Parent Guide includes super simple ways to do some targeted learning using the bin. The activities also target expectations in the Ontario Kindergarten curriculum.
It's true - messes can happen with sensory bins!
Review the rules with your children and remind them of the expectation to keep the base material inside the bin.
You may also opt to put the bin on a towel or play mat and have this be the designated sensory area. It could also be an outdoor activity in your household.
Most importantly, teach your child to that participation in the cleanup of the sensory bin is part of the activity. Developing a sense of responsibility is one of the expectations of the Kindergarten curriculum.
Definitely! Base materials and tools, in particular, are easy to switch up. Please contact me to request a substitution and we can work it out.
As of right now the standard bins are 5.7 L. However, if you contact me regarding a Customized Bin option, we can work out an order with a larger bin that will be priced accordingly :)
Larger bins are great for children to enjoy in pairs or small groups, so keep your eyes peeled for these to order in the future!
I am always on the lookout for tools that can be used in sensory bins, and the offer of five tools allows for a variety of grips and small motor skills to be targeted.
Options generally include: tweezers, tongs, scoops, cups of various shapes and sizes, spoons, and stirring options.
