Always superviseThese sets contain small pieces that could be a choking hazard.
Set basic rulesBe sure to set some ground rules for your child when they are playing with a sensory bin. For instance, if it is something that is inedible, then let your child know that they should not put the objects in their mouths. Usually our only rule for sensory play is to keep the materials limited to the bin or tray.
Use a floor coverFor easy clean up, put a sheet on the floor and replace spilled contents back into the tray after play. It helps to contain the mess and makes clean up so much easier. You can use a sheet, tablecloth or shower curtain.
Opportunity to bondJoin in and play alongside your child, especially if he or she is a bit hesitant to try it out. Show them different ways that they can play or ask them to describe what they are doing as they play.
