Q: I'm trying to figure out the difference between the messy boxes and the sensory boxes?Asked by Cortney D., September 2019
Messy Play Kits contain multiple activities, like science kits with various projects. They are best for ages 3-8 or so and require adult supervision and guidance. Sensory Bins are open-ended exploratory play kits that contain one basic activity (a themed sensory bin) that’s reusable. They are best for children ages 3-5 or so. Both products have various themes and ship one box per month.

June's Kit was our popular Under the Sea theme kit! Create your own Moonsand Beach, a Slime Ocean Bath, beautiful Watercolor Coral artwork, and a really cool Density Experiment!
This is our best-selling sensory bin! Kids LOVE the squishy, slimy waterbeads! They start off small and gross to be the size of marbles, and the bright turquoise color is stunning. This Bin includes 3 sets of waterbeads (each reusable and biodegradable!), plus creatures, fine motor tools and more.
In May, we brought the outside world inside, with spaghetti grass and bugs, "clean dirt" and a fun Growing a Grasserpillar activity (like a chia pet but caterpillar form!). Kids love the slime textures, and being able to watch something they have created actually take life and grow is VERY powerful!
This bin is a hit! Kids love colored rice- it's such a relaxing sensory material. This Bin comes with brown colored rice "dirt" and colorful garbanzo bean "seeds" in little hand-stamped seed packets. There's a wonderful dramatic play component as kids pretend to garden and practice real life skills.
Get ready for Halloween with this awesome Gooey Ghouls kit! Contains 3 activities designed to help children explore the holiday: make your own gooey slime with eyeballs, create 2 paper mâché ghosts, and build and destroy your very own monster! Allowing children to play creatively with abstract concepts such as monsters and ghosts allows them to feel powerful over these concepts, as they get to take part in creating them. Is the monster scary or friendly?
