St. Patty's Day Sensory Bin

So I finally got around to making Alex a new sensory bin. I've been thinking about it for weeks. It was very inexpensive. I only had to purchase 3 bags of green split peas and the rest was things I had around the house or made.
Whats Inside:
3 bags of Green Split Peas
Yellow and green cups (used for dying eggs)
Small funnel
2 green spoons (leftover from a b-day party)
5 Green snakes (leftover from Halloween)
some yellow gems (leftover from fall bin)
A handful of gold stones (these were from his construction bin and I painted them with some gold acrylic paint and added some glitter)
A few green felt flowers
Stripes of craft foam in rainbow colors to create a rainbow
Rainbow foam letters to spell out ALEXANDER
2 paper leprechauns that I printed out and covered in contact paper.
4 shamrocks cut out of green craft foam
