At Big Top Child Development Center they experienced the textures of sand in a unique way–they got the sand wet and put their feet in it! This was a fun twist on usual sensory bins and a great way to cool off on a hot Summer day.

How to enjoy the wet sand sensory bins
To enjoy these wet sand sensory bins follow these steps:
- Begin by filling each bin with the same amount of sand.
- Start adding water to each sand bin–add more in some and less in others so they are different levels of wet.
- Have the children put their feet in the wet sand sensory bins!
- Ask the children questions about which bins they think are wetter and which are less.
