Tissue Paper Sensory Bin

By on March 04, 2013
Lately, K has been ripping pages out of more books than I care to count, including a few library books.  Well, I am tired of taping books back together.  I needed to find him an outlet for all of his ripping and tearing needs.  My solution was a sensory bin filled with tissue paper just waiting to be destroyed.

To make this sensory bin, I simply grabbed some tissue paper in a variety of colors and tossed it into our bin.  I like to save gift bags and tissue paper from gifts that we have received, so I just reused some tissue paper from my collection.

I thought they would love this sensory bin a lot more than they actually did.  K lasted approximately five minutes.  J lasted about ten seconds, but occasionally came back to check things out.  I managed to capture a few pictures in that short period of time though...

And no sensory bin is complete without a child (or two) sitting (or laying) inside the bin.

J also ran some tissue paper through his toes.
