Easter Sensory Bin!

Sensory Bins For Toddlers
My two younger children loved this easter sensory bin!
They spent quite a while running their hands through the grass, burying and then searching for the eggs and animals, and incorporating imaginative play by making the animals talk to one another!
They loved it!
Not only is it great for toddlers but my six year old had fun with this as well!
What a great way for siblings to learn sharing and imaginative play!
I love to watch my kids play together:)
How to make the easter sensory bin.
First you need a bin to put your easter items in.
I use a clear plastic tub that is about 20 inches long, 14 inches wide, and 6 inches deep.
It doesn’t have to be exactly that size. Just make sure that it is large enough for them to play in without knocking out the contents, and not too deep that they can’t reach in to play well.
Also, if you have multiple children playing with the bin you want to make sure that it is big enough to accommodate everyone.
Next, gather your easter toys!
You don’t have to use exactly the same items that I did. Any easter toys will work!
The only item that you really need to use for the experience that I did, is the easter grass.
Easter grass is the part that makes this sensory bin fun!
You can however use any color easter grass that you would like. I had green on hand so that’s what I used:)
Then I added easter toys!
Easter Perler Bead Animals
Mini Easter Animals (such as chickens, sheep, rabbits, etc.)
Simply add the easter toys to the easter grass and that’s it!
Then comes the fun part, sensory play!
I hope you and your kids enjoy the easter sensory bin as much as we did!
