In its most basic form, a sensory bin contains fillers, which make up the majority of the bin. A filler can be anything from rice, sand, water… the sky’s the limit with the possibilities. Then, you add other objects to create a theme for your bin, and all of the items combined will help stimulate your child’s senses. Pretty amazing, huh?
I’ve come across so many creative sensory bins over the years and I love how they’re growing in popularity. Lots of preschools are starting to introduce them in their classrooms for its learning benefits and interactive features.
I found some great sensory bin ideas to help you get started on making your very own. What do you think of the sensory bin concept? Have you ever made one before? Let me know by commenting below!
