80+ sensory bin ideas for preschoolers: add yours here!

Pin It
 
around our house, we love sensory bins.  they are a great way to incorporate whatever theme we are exploring and learning about or to just provide a great sensory play experience for
Bear {4.5 yrs} based on his current interests.
 
there are so many different ideas and materials that can be used for bins.  and the base of a sensory bin is easy and inexpensive to create using rice, dry pasta, beans, or corn.  bins can be tailored for your child's age, whether they are infants, toddlers, preschoolers, or even grade-schoolers.  they can be centered around colors, letters, or themes.
 
sensory bins can be set out as an invitation to play.  or they can be used for learning activities, as we've done in some of the ideas below.
 
here are some of the sensory bins that we've done

I don't think we've ever done a sensory bin! We do sensory trays, and some interesting things in our sandbox!
