Sugar Aunts: Snowy Farm Sensory Bin

Snowy Farm Sensory Bin

Before this weeked, we've had a super cool spring.  With a handful of days where it snowed.  We are ready for outside play in short sleeves, running in the yard, and grass stained knees. 
But, we have been loving this fun play activity too :)
We had a boat load of shredded paper from doing taxes recently.  It came in pretty handy for a

small world snowy farm scene!

We put some farm animals, the Little People barn, and of course, Little Guy's construction vehicles.
(how else can the farmer move allll that snow??)

Little Guy went to farm-town with imagination stories and pretend play.
Baby Girl loves to make the animal sounds and had a blast finding them in the shredded paper.
My fun-loving Baby Girl instigated this little incident...
she just couldn't help herself :)
What are we learning through play?
