Have you tried barley as a sensory bin filler? How about homemade lavender barley?! This easy-to-make sensory bin filler is both calming and beautiful to look at (and not as miserable to step on afterward, like chickpeas! lol)
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 2 lbs of Pearl Barley
- 1/2 cup of Dried Lavender
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Purple Food Dye (optional)
You’ll notice I have two different colors, one is red and blue food dye to make purple (the more natural colored one) and the other is straight-up “Violet” Wilton Gel Food Coloring which made a much more vibrant shade of purple. They look great when mixed together too.
