A little while ago I posted about my daughter's Quiet Bins, the themed bins I make for Yummy to enjoy in her own room during Dooter's nap time, so I can have a little time to myself every afternoon. As predicted, the last few were getting a bit too familiar, so I added a new one into the mix: The Farm Bin.

Into the Farm Bin went:  A piece of green felt cut to fit the bottom of the bin, for grass, a piece of blue foam paper cut into a pond shape and glued to a piece of cardboard, along with a couple foam lily pads and a bit of grass, a small trough made from cardboard and hot glue, with a few bits of wood shavings from my Harvest Sensory Bin, a wooden sunflower and a wooden apple tree, five wooden thread spools for hay bales, a small tin bucket full of nuts in shells and a small metal scooper, three toy vehicles: a combine, a Gator, and a white truck (like her Daddy's), a number of plastic animals (three horses, a donkey, a calf, a baby alpaca, two kittens, a lamb, and a piglet), a vet, and a girl holding a saddle.  The people, and most of the animals are from Schleich (I just love their realistic animals and think they are a great toy for encouraging imaginative play).

I also included a plain wooden basket that I found at Dollarama for $2.  I set it up as an invitation to create along with these paints, which were also $2.  I am pretty sure these were some of the best $4 I've ever spent!  Yummy spent hours, on multiple days, painting and re-painting her basket, experimenting with the different colours and layering colour over colour.  
It didn't turn out especially beautiful, but Yummy really likes it and had such a great time painting it.  It makes a personalized addition to her new bin.
