      This was one of the simpler sensory bins I’ve done, but there was so much learning involved for the kids. Sensory bins definitely don’t have to be complicated to provide a wonderful learning experience.

    I use and create sensory bins all the time for my clients (I’m a speech therapist) but I LOVE LOVE this one. Putting it a clear container only adds to the excitement and anticipation. I can’t wait to try this one with some of my clients (as long as they don’t try to eat the rice…may try dried pasta instead!).
    Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for your comment. And you are right that a sensory bin with rice would not be appropriate for all kids, especially those who still put things in their mouths. Fortunately my kids are past that stage. πŸ™‚ But there’s so much fun to be had with all the Easter eggs. Hope your clients enjoy!

    Oh what fun! I love sensory bins too and I really need to get on the ball and do more for my girls they really love them and they are great for keeping them entertained too! Thanks so much for sharing on We Made That!

    I was just thinking about making a sensory bin for my 2-year-old this week. I’ll be sure to include some of your ideas. Thanks for sharing!

    I love the sensory bin. I especially love the picture of the kiddos inside the bin. It is a great tactile experience, I have to admit that when setting things up, I never can resist the urge to run my fingers through the rice, pasta, lentils, or whatever filler I have decided to use!

    What a great project. I was ignorant about sensory projects until my children had outgrown them. I hope you’ll consider sharing this post at my Look What We Did link up.

    Looks like they had so much fun! I love the rice and the way they used different utensils to pick things up. Great for motor skills! Thanks for sharing your Easter Sensory bin at Mom’s Library!

    Just the last few weeks I’ve been struggling with the idea of sensory bins. I didn’t really understand the educational aspect and was very distracted by how messy they can be! Thank you for sharing all the different ways your kids learned through this activity! Maybe I’ll try another bin πŸ™‚
