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.

|Tissue paper sensory bin|
- Large plastic bin
- Tissue paper in a variety of colors - I like to save gift bags and tissue paper from gifts that we have received, so I just reused some from my collection.
The Invitation to Play
Toss all of the tissue paper into the bin and leave it to be discovered. Easy, peasy!
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 before declaring it a sensory bin fail, at least for today.

|No sensory bin activity is complete until the bin has been sat in...|
