What is an alligator theme without a sensory bin?
My idea was to do a swamp sensory bin and I had to use what I had around the house for this one, no extra time to run to the store this week.
I thought about using brownie mix but it always dissolves in the water not giving the kids much time to play in it.
I went with oatmeal. I would have liked to dye it brown but the kids didn't complain about the color.
I had The Dragons add the water
I liked using oatmeal because it doesn't dissolve in the water and it smelt really good. :)
The oatmeal absorbed some of the water making a great swamp texture.
Even though the water wasn't brown the oatmeal did make it kind of murky.
Perfect for alligator hiding
The kids kept asking how I snuck milk into the bin because of the color. Silly kids! I never did tell them my secret. I went with magic.
