We do a lot of sensory activities, which means that we use A LOT of sensory materials. Making sure that we have everything that we need for an activity is important. No one wants to disappoint a room full of preschoolers who just want to make flubber!
The best solution the we have found for cataloguing our supplies, is also the best solution for storing them. We use Rubbermaid Kitchen containers to store supplies. Not only do these keep the supplies fresh, and the critters away, but they are clear, so we can always see what we need more of.
The containers are available in a number of different sizes, so that you can store and entire bag of flour, or a single carton of baking soda. They range in price from 3.99-9.99 depending on size, and completely worth the investment. We’ve all had the avalanche of Ziploc bags, we consider these an essential!
