We started by collecting our mini-cars for crushing and cones.  The flag took at total of 2 minutes to make.  I printed an image of the web and adhered them to mini-skewers with hot glue! This was C’s favorite addition.  Total time to set up the sensory bin was less than 20 minutes and total cost = $0!  Yay! $0 = happy Mommy! Let’s break it down.

Simple materials needed:

  • Happy Baby O’s Containers
  • Egg Carton
  • Dirt
  • Large Plastic Bin
  • Shovel

Don’t have O’s containers? Easy fix, just use cardboard, recycled water bottles cut off, or anything similar.  I just love homemade fun! I think my recycled collection is a bit out of control at the  moment, but who’s looking, right?! After placing the recycled containers in the bin, I added dirt and the cardboard ramps! That’s it! Super easy and gleaming with fun imaginative and  ! Ramps? Yes, we even have ramps!

What’s a monster track without ramps, right?! Just fold one end of a small piece of cardboard to create your ramp on each side and add your flags. Ready, set, GO!
