My wedding colors were green and purple, and after all this time I still had some colored sand left over from the event.
What could I do with green and purple sand? Make a sensory bin of course! The Princess and The Frog sensory bin to be exact.
I wish I had some other frog type items to put in there, but in the end I think it turned out nicely. I used:
Scarlett really, really liked this one. She liked burying Louis, the big alligator, in the sand. Then after a while, she took everything out and put her feet in the sand. Definitely her beach-loving father’s daughter!
She ended up stepping on Ray and broke him, so that was sad. But we kept this one set up for a few days because she enjoyed it so much. And I only had to vacuum up a little because she was so careful to keep the sand in the container. It was a win-win bin!
