Confessions: Easter Sensory Bin
Bright, colorful, and on theme
This Easter sensory bin is made with colored rice, plastic eggs, little chicks and fine motor tools. Bright and colorful, this rice bin is fun for all ages.
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 chicks 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!
This Easter sensory bin uses a colored rice base and fine motor ideas for play. Before using the rice for sensory play, check out this fun method of coloring Easter eggs with colored rice!
MAKE THE RICE BIN:
What you need:
- dry rice
- colored rice (see below)
- fine motor tools
- plastic eggs
- tray or bin
- fuzzy Easter chicks or colored pom poms
The colored rice is a favorite of my kiddo. It last forever and they get a ton of use out of it. My bubs tends to 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 or washable kids paint, 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. Add you contents to the bin and let children explore! Tweezers are great tools for pre-handwriting practice! They strengthen little fingers, getting them ready to hold pencils and pens in the future.
After a while the rice will all be mixed together, creating a beautiful rainbow mixture!
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!
Let me know how this works out for you!
