Springtime Sensory Bin

It’s a new season, so I decided it was time to create a new sensory bin for Trevor.  He loves playing with his rice and bean sensory bins, but I like to create a special themed sensory bin for him every once in awhile to mix it up.  He had a great time playing with this bin today!

What’s in Our Springtime Sensory Bin:

  • Bird Seed
  • Fake Flowers
  • Pots
  • Flower Bulbs
  • Plastic Bugs
  • Magnifying Glass
  • Watering Can
  • Butterfly Blowers
  • Fake Moss-Covered Rocks
  • Shovel and Rake

I bought the bird seed at Wal-Mart, and everything else I found at the Dollar Tree, so this a fairly inexpensive way to have fun, to learn, and to explore with your senses.

“Watering” his flowers:

Super cool magnifying glass:

Trying to figure out the butterfly party blower:

He doesn’t have the oral-motor strength to blow it himself, so I helped him out.  He thought that was funny:
