Transportation activities for kids Today we are learning about transportation.My girl likes sensory bins very much.Transportation theme sensory box. Here’s what we do: we keep this shoe box and use it only for sensory play.We also added some fun vehicles and rocks to the mix and those stay with the sensory bin.
