Easter or Spring Sensory Bin

I have had the items for this bin for a while.  I just picked up a few things here and there - mostly at the $1 Spot at Target.  Once again the kids really enjoyed it.  I had enough to make two bins so they could all do it.

Items we used:

Blue and purple Easter grass
Mini plastic eggs
Pom poms
Easter themed erasers - big and small
Prickly pom poms (I don't know the technical term)
2 big plastic eggs with "jumping" bunnies inside
Pretty sparkled foam stickers

I also placed small bowls and ice cube trays for sorting.  I gave them plastic spoons and tongs to use as well.

Some Ideas to do:

  • Have them find all of the hidden items.
  • Sort pom poms in ice cube trays by color. 
  • Hide items in mini plastic eggs - can also put matching color of pom poms into plastic eggs.
  • Sort items with like items
  • Make patterns with the items
  • Or just play!

My kids have loved these bins.  We pulled this one out early and I plan to keep it handy to play with for a while.
