Valentine’s Day Sensory Bins

It’s time!! I love getting to switch out our sensory bins with new goodies for a new month or holiday! Valentine’s Day just might bring my favorite bins, and I’m super excited to share some of them with y’all today!

The following sensory bins are our large bins for the month. We’ve enjoyed using 2 large bins with most of our sensory materials, as well as our monthly Preschool units!

Valentine’s Day Sensory Bin #1

Our first sensory bin is filled with our favorite shiny black beans, Valentine’s Day table scatter, alphabet stickers in Valentine colors and puffy shapes stickers in Valentine colors.

I’ve found that making new themed or seasonal sensory bins is super simple and inexpensive if you just take the seasonal colors from the materials you already have! So that’s exactly what I did with our puffy alphabet stickers and puffy shape stickers! We’ll be able to use these materials for so many activities!

Mini “Pencil Box bins”

The rest of these bins are mini bins we’ve used in the past but love to take out for a little extra fun! These work great in small spaces or if you’re taking some sensory bins with you while you’re out and about!

For this “mini bin”, I used 2 small containers of white kinetic sand that I found at Target, as well as the same table scatter from the preview bins. LG absolutely LOVES playing with this kinetic sand, and I may or may not join in myself!

Another fun “mini bin” can be easily made with cotton balls, Target mini erasers from last February, and the leftover table scatter. LG loves to use scoopers with the cotton balls and especially loves to play with the tiny unicorns!
