Spring Sensory Bin

My girls are big fans of sensory bins and so am I! It keeps them happy and busy and they are very inexpensive to make.

I put together this Spring Sensory Bin with a few cheap ingredients from the store and some Easter and seasonal stuff I already had from last year.

Materials:

  • Plastic storage bin
  • Large bag of white rice
  • Approx. 2 bags of green split peas
  • Easter and seasonal trinkets such as erasers, flowers, bunnies, chicks, etc…
  • Spoons, measuring cups, or things to scoop with. We like these fine motor tools.

Gather your materials and pour your rice and peas in your bin. The bin can be played in as is without the toys, as my toddler did. She dug right in and loved the way it felt.

I like to use these Ikea trays under our sensory bins. Things can get a little messy and these help catch a little bit of the pieces.

Willa (3) was so excited that she finally figured out how to use the tweezers to pick up the toys!

Willa’s duplo legos ended up joining in on the fun!
