The Frozen Sensory Bin is a do it yourself activity designed for children with sensory processing disorder to create. This Frozen sensory bin is a simple one but it combines several textures and opens itself up to imaginative play with the addition of the characters.

Technical Specifications: 

Step One: For the base, use salt, but the user could also use sugar (not recommended because it may be too tempting for children to eat) or Epsom salt.

Step Two: Add reusable plastic ice cubes in purple and various shades of blue. Freeze them to begin with, to add another sensory element to the bin of having something cold.

Step Three: Add fuzzy pompoms in blue and white, glass beads in blue and clear, a tiny Elsa figurine, and some larger Frozen characters, Olaf, Kristof, Anna, and Hans or Sven.

The Chaos and The Clutter
Organization Type: 

The Chaos and The Clurtter is a website/blog administered by Sharla Kostelyk, a mother of 5, with children with special needs. She shares her experience with some homemade sensory products and with her life. She says...

I want you to find happiness in the chaos and the clutter. As a disorganized, creative, scattered, homeschooling mother of seven, including five with Special Needs, I spent years feeling like I wasn’t measuring up to the “perfect” moms I knew.

I would walk around my house, stepping over toys, crunching a dry Cheerio underfoot, passing by a pile of papers, and trying to ignore the mountain of laundry that seemed to grow by the second, and I would feel like a failure. I felt overwhelmed and stressed out and sometimes was grouchy with my kids as a result, only adding to my feelings of guilt.

I tried every organizational system in the book, but mastered none. I was letting the best years with my children slip away and was determined that if I could not change the state of the house, at least I could change my attitude.


At The Chaos and The Clutter, I share with you some of my small victories. I am real. I tell the truth about the imperfect parent that I am. I hope that this will be a place where people can be their true “mismatched socks because there weren’t any clean ones” selves!

My everyday life is never ordinary. Most days, I still feel like I am drowning in the busyness! I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I will share anything that has helped me, anything that hasn’t, and the humorous moments in between.

Another type of clutter that I am trying to get rid of is financial clutter. There is just no happiness to be found there! We are trying to climb out of debt and I will also share those tips I learn along the way.

I hope that you will join me in trying to find the blessings and the joy in among the chaos and the clutter!
