Sand, dirt, water, food — if it's messy, my toddlers love playing with it! Sensory play is crucial for toddlers' development, as research has shown that combining the sense of touch with the senses of vision, hearing, taste, and smell builds cognitive skills. But just because you want your 2-year-old to explore their world doesn't mean you can't offer them opportunities to do so in a safe, controlled way. (You know, a way that won't leave sticky residue all over your kitchen or your toddler covered head to toe in mud.) Sensory toys and Montessori toys are great options to engage their brain, but if you are looking for some silly, messy, colorful fun, then try sensory bins! Premade sensory bins are filled with rice or beads in all the colors of the rainbow, tools to explore, toys, shapes, and more objects that make playtime exciting — and contain the mess to one bin!
