December Sensory Bin for 2+ year old

Today we have a guest post by¬†Rhiannon Moore. She is a full time nanny from Iowa who has an amazing Instagram account. When I saw pictures of the activities she posts on her Instagram, I thought I’ll ask her to write the very first article for this blog and I am thrilled that she agreed!
