Easy Sensory Stations for Toddlers

I love things to be neat, clean, and tidy. After having my daughter I had to concede that kids will be kids and that comes with messes. Messes can be fun, and as a toddler exploring her world I want BabyCakes to be able to have time exploring freely even if it causes a mess.

When cleaning up those messes I have to be particularly careful of what products I use. I don't want her playing on surfaces cleaned with harsh chemicals, and her pediatrician has recommended sulfate-free laundry detergent for the whole family because of her eczema. Currently we use the new sulfate-free all® Fresh Clean Essentials™ Fragrance Free.
Because it is very easy to acquire way too many toys I like to take a less is more approach to playtime with BabyCakes. It's fun to re-purpose toys and household items for different kids of play. On weekends I like to make up sensory bins for her to engage in solo exploratory play. Creating a DIY sensory station is a easy.

For both the wet and dry sensory stations lay out a plastic table cloth on the floor. This makes for easy cleanup. You can skip this step if you are able to have your sensory play happen outdoors. This particular spring day was very rainy so we brought the play inside. 
Use two separate bins or bowls to hold your items. For more than one child you'll want a container that is more horizontal. 
I do not recommend doing dry and wet stations at the same time. That usually results in everything being a wet station. 
These stations provide a fun time with items from around the house. They also encourage solo play time.

Knowing that I have sulfate-free all® Fresh Clean Essentials™ on my shelf I don't mind some messy play, including the occasional bib free popsicle.
