Easter Sensory Bin

Recently I put together our first sensory bin, this one is all about Easter. Everything in the bin I bought for a dollar at Wal-Mart or the Dollar Tree. When I put the bin together Little Bit immediately started asking what is was for and playing. She has loved playing in many different ways with all the different items in the bin. It is fun to watch Little Bit thinking, playing and discovering. 

What is in our bin:

Large and small eggs
Foam cutouts: shapes bunny, egg, and carrot
Grass: pink, green, purple
Buckets: mini square baskets, 2 small metal buckets, 2 large plastic buckets
Erasers: various Easter shapes
4 Bendable Bunnies
Stickers: used for matching eggs and on cutouts

Ways we use our sensory bin:

Sorting - foam cutouts by shape, large and small eggs, foam cutouts with and without a sticker
Matching - top and bottom of eggs by stickers inside the egg
Counting - eggs, cutouts, erasers, bunnies, etc
Finger Play - bendable bunnies, grass, putting eggs together, picking up items with the tongs,
placing small eggs inside large eggs
