One of our favorite ways to celebrate the holidays is by making a themed sensory bin! This Easter sensory bin is such a fun one, with colored rice, easter grass, plastic eggs, little bunnies and a silicone egg mold, my kids are keeping very busy! Tip: I like to stock up on items after the holidays so I can get them at a discount!
An Easter Sensory Bin Kids Will Love!
The colored rice is a favorite of my kids’! It last forever and they get a ton of use out of it. My kids especially enjoy any activity involving food coloring and color mixing!
There are many variations for how to make this rice, we simply put the rice in a ziplock bag, add a drop or two of food coloring along with a squirt of hand sanitizer and give it a good shake! It smells so fresh too 🙂
I keep a bin of various scoopers, spoons etc for our sensory bin play. I think all toddlers love anything having to do with dumping and scooping!
These funny faced Easter eggs from the Dollar Tree were the perfect addition for my little ones, they enjoyed filling the eggs with rice and making musical shakers. We even had an Easter parade! If you want a quick way to find free music to dance to with kids, do a YouTube search for kids easter songs, you should find quite a few!
Children (and adults) learn best when all senses are engaged, and these sensory bins are the perfect tool for exactly that. We hope you get a chance to make an Easter sensory bin too!
Happy playing 🙂
