With Easter coming up, I was so excited to create an Easter sensory bin for my kids to use and explore. As I explain in my post Sensory Play: What It’s All About?, there is so much that children can learn from sensory bins and other forms of sensory play. In this post I’m sharing how I created my Easter sensory bin. I’m also detailing the various ways that my kids used the bin, with commentary about the skills they were developing along the way.
I created our Easter sensory bin from the following items:
- A base of green and white rice (left over from our Christmas sensory bin)
- Two small pails
- A handful of fabric Easter eggs
- Some plastic Easter eggs
- Mini Easter egg beads (inside the plastic Easter eggs)
