Birdseed Sensory Bin

I dislike sand so my poor children have no sand table. I tried rice sensory bins in our sun room, which was great, except for the bits of rice that were tracked through the house. I thought about taking it outside but rice is not good for the animals who would inevitably eat it. I racked my brain for a solution; something that could be done outside and safe enough to leave on the ground. Then it came to me, BIRDSEED!

It's FINALLY nice enough to play outside so I went on a search for the perfect birdseed. I wanted the size of rice without too many big pieces (such as this). I also got extra deep roaster pans which was the perfect size for the project.

I used about a half of a 10lb bag of seed for four kids. I gave them spoons and cups and let them go!
