This week we reminisce our trip to Australia with a sensory bin. We used the animal figures that we bought from Australia and some random items we collected during the trip, with a very aromatic base of lavender.
While the animal figures are sold at most souvenir shops at the various attractions, we got this at the Denmark Visitor Center. There is also a rather wide collection at the Caversham Wildlife Park. It doesn’t matter if you can’t recognize the animals, their names are printed underneath each figures. Lavender was from whatever that I have at home, which were bought from the local Chinese medical hall.
Besides scooping and getting reacquainted with the Australian animals, she also particular enjoyed the lavender rain. I made an effort to keep the pail and scoops out of sight and see how our little friend responds to play with her hands.
