As I said, the contents are nothing shockingly inventive, although perhaps surprising for a sensory bin, which I think is what attracted so many of them to it. There are some mixed (in- shell) nuts, cinnamon scented pine cones from Christmas, and pine cones collected from outdoors. There are also a few coffee beans that somehow made their way in the bin as well. I provided them several wooden containers/ scoops to use, two of which are shown in the photo. The room smells great between the cinnamon and the coffee beans!
