I'm a firm believer that babies can enjoy most of the sensory materials and bins that are created for older children. You may be reluctant to let your baby play with smaller material, but with a parent or caregiver watching ever so closely, babies can explore a large variety of sensory materials. Yes they will probably try to eat, but be there to intercept and inbetween those tries, you'll see that your little one is playing and exploring, and more than likely enjoying the experience!
So far, baby B has had a birdseed sensory bin, a waterbeads sensory bin, and today I put together this simple pan of large noodles, rice, and plastic shapes. I never took my eyes off of him and he did try to eat it twice, but the rest of the time was spent enjoying this new sensory experience! This simple sensory bin was played with longer than he's ever played with any of his battery operated toys.
On my hardwood floors it was a simple cleanup with just a quick sweep, but if you have carpet, set your bins on a plastic table cloth for easy cleanup!
