We had done a bit of painting with and chasing magnets a few days back so I decided to explore some more. I already had colored rice and beans in his sensory bin so the rest took about ten minutes to set up.
I cut up little hearts and fishes from colored paper, put a paperclip on each of them and mixed them up in his red rice tub.
For the fishing stick, I tied one end of a piece of yarn to a stick and one end to a magnet.
As the clips got attracted to and stuck on the magnet, he fished them out one by one!
