I love putting together sensory bins for my girls, and I'll tell you a little secret about why. It's because they play with them forever!  I can make dinner!  I can fold laundry!  With a sensory bin, the girls stay in one spot and play quietly for nearly an hour.  For me, that's worth the time, effort, and (minimal) expense that they require.


The base of our spring sensory bin is paper Easter grass in natural-ish colors-- green, yellow, and orange.  The extras are mini erasers from Target (chicks, carrots, and bunnies), pebbles, tiny fuzzy chicks from a craft store, a Safari Toob of Flowers and tiny little pots made from coconut fiber (also from a craft store, in the floral department).

My girls always engage more in a sensory bin when I separate all the little extra stuff.  That way they can play with however much (or little) of it that they want without things getting jumbled up.  This particular bin evolved into more of a small world type play.  Not much happened IN the bin, but they played with all the goodies separately out on the big play sheet that I spread out.

I also pulled out our 'standard' sensory bin tools.  The girls like to play with a muffin tin, an ice cube tray, tongs (large and small), and an assortment of measuring cups and spoons.

While Maggie made nests for little chickies,

and bowls of "healfy" food for them so they'd grow up big and "healfy."
