Magnetic Christmas Sensory Bin

Want to mix in a little play-based learning this holiday season? Throw together this magnetic Christmas sensory bin and watch your little one learn a new science concept without realizing it!

What You Need:

2 lbs. Navy Beans

1 Christmas Canister

1 Magnetic Wand

9 Metallic Pipe Cleaners (Red, Green, Silver, Gold)

15 Pom Poms

10 Bells (Red, Green, Silver, Gold)

2 Clear Ornaments

13 Mini Metal Ornaments (My Little Christmas, Hobby Lobby)

3 Mini Bottle Brush Trees

Sensory Bin (We've used this one previously because we love that it latches, its depth, and the fact that it's clear so you know immediately what's inside. But lately we're obsessed with this pretty white one from IKEA.)

*Amounts are approximate. Use as much/as little as you'd like!
