I love setting up different Sensory bins and activities for my boys. Now that Ty is at the age where he can join in on the fun, I’ve been setting up activities geared towards both a 10 month old and a 5 year old. I have a large clean plastic container that I dumped in a bunch of Cheerios. Both boys had a great time putting their hands in the Cheerios, digging them around, swirling their fingers in it and of course eating them! Once Dylan got bored, I let the smaller one sit in the container of Cheerios.
Each activity probably took about 5 minutes to set up and a little longer to clean up but definitely worth it for both boys. As with any activity, adult supervision is required. I hope you try some of these sensory ideas and let me know what works for you! For us, it not only breaks up the day, but the boys get to relax and explore while having fun.
