Scented Sensory Bins {HOP}

Lemon-Scented-Cloud-Dough--1024x650

I’m really excited to be joining in as a host of the Hands-On Play Party with some fabulous bloggers. This linky will be posted each Tuesday. I will be sharing some of my own activities for kids plus sharing some other great ideas from bloggers that link up each week.

This week I’m sharing some scented sensory bins. Children can use their sense of smell along with sense of touch with these bins. My kids enjoyed this hot cocoa sensory tub a couple winters ago:

Here are a couple of my favorite scented sensory tubs linked up for HOP the past couple weeks:
