Having been a doctor for the last 10 years, working every day with babies and children, I thought I was pretty well-placed to know everything-about-everything when Doof was born. However I soon learnt being a mum is very different to being a doctor...

10 "edible" (taste-safe) sensory bins
having a baby who will eat everything means I'm always looking for
taste-safe sensory play options at the moment, especially as her
new-found mobility means she'll come over and gatecrash anything that's
laid out :)
So here are 10 sensory bins (click on the headings for more details) - all taste-safe, although some more palatable than others! And obviously just because they are all edible does *not* mean that you should encourage your baby to sit and eat a whole sensory bin from any of these... it just means if a bit does go in their mouth you don't need to panic :)
Have you done any other taste-safe activities with your little ones? I'd love to hear :)
as with any activity involving your toddler/baby, use your own
common sense. I always closely supervise any sensory play and always
inspect items for wear/tear carefully before each playing session. Always make sure you are confident with
safety of whatever your child is playing with.
