Make a cuddly sensory experience with a fluffy bin.
My youngest is just starting to sit up on her own which means she is ready for some super fun activities. She’s got a soft spot for stuffed animal friend so this is a tailor made activity for my snuggle loving baby. She is obsessed with this fluffy bin and all the soft fun inside.
We love, love, love our kiddie pool and rarely use it as a pool. Here it is as a fluffy bin: a sensory exploration of all things cuddly. I needed to work in the yard, so I set Kate up with every single stuffed toy I could get my hands on. Plopped her down with them and she was in heaven.
Making a fluffy bin takes just a second!

As I went about collecting the stuffed toys, I started noticing the different textures each had and the different feel of their fur. Even though they are all soft and cuddly, each had different fur, different lengths, different fabrics, etc. It was fantastic for Kate’s baby hands and for her to explore.
Kate (8 months) loved this fluffy bin and it bought me the time I needed to get a little work done and not feel like I had completely neglected her. I fully expect to use the kiddie pool and the fluffy bin as an inside activity during the winter, because who doesn’t need to snuggle up with some soft friends on a cold day?
When my toddler woke up from his nap, he actually joined Baby in the fluffy bin for a little toddler-stuffed animal cuddle time. Doesn’t get much cuter than a toddler and baby in a sensory bin together.
Making this fluffy bin was the perfect sensory activity for my baby. It kept her entertained and busy while also exploring and learning about different textures. Definitely a two thumbs up activity!
