Letter B Tot Sensory Basket

As I mentioned in my last sensory basket post I was running out of ideas. Many really liked the red basket and suggest I do the other colors. I would love to continue on with that but I don't have a lot of baby proof items in other colors at the moment-except possibly blue (possible idea for the next one). Scouring the blog world I found baskets with letters of the alphabet theme. Why didn't I think of this? I struggled with starting with A but decided to go with B since that is what my tot's (well actually 10 1/2 months old) begins with. This sensory basket is chalked full of goodies. Once I started finding things that begin with B I couldn't stop!!!
The B basket it all its glory!
The B items are:
I took a large picture of "B" and put it in a page protector with a piece of cardboard behind it so it won't bend.
On the other side is a pic of the two brothers. Each one I put a foam B on the outside and taped the sleeve shut.
Felt Barn & Boy, Wooden Bird, Large Letter B, B Block, Boat, Blue Bootie, Binky, Rattle with Bells, & Plastic Bead Ring
Glass jar with buttons and wooden letter b (good for rattling)
Board Book, Bag with a Bow, Gift Bow, Brush, and Foam Brush (one of his fave toys)
Large letter B puzzle piece w/ bear on it, teddy bear, baby bear figurine, and sponge bear
Blue ring and circle, blue block, and blue sensory bottle (from nature basket)
Box with stackable blocks, two balls, and a badge
Mardi Gras Beads (so far his favorite) and a bag of beans and a magnet letter B (taped shut of course)

I told you this basket was a little over the top. The letter idea is so clever and now I think I have ideas ranging from ABC's, Shapes, and Colors to last me a little while. I am curious what others do with their children who are under 18 months old?
