$25 Sensory Essentials from a Dollar Store

If you are familiar with my blog at all, you know that I love a good sensory experience. There are just so many opportunities for learning through sensory play. I thought I would share a few items that I keep on hand from the dollar store so I am always prepared to set up a sensory bin.
