This Bread Tie Ghost Craft is a DIY sensory bin made for developing children to explore textures through play. The sensory bin can be used to in occupational therapy settings to provide a calming period in a sensory diet or lifestyle. A sensory bin provides an opportunity for the body to slow down, and can be relaxing for a child who is overstimulated or hypersensitive to his or her environment.
