Spring is in the air! We’ve been lucky to have a few days of warmer weather and have been outside playing the hours away. Of course we had to create our first outdoor sensory bin of the season! This Spring Robin Sensory Bin is sure to get you in the mood for Spring. We used a few items that you might have seen before on the blog and put together a quick and easy bin for sensory play. Because nothing says Spring like minimal prep!

Spring Sensory Bin Idea
So, last year we made these egg carton robins. They are back and made the perfect addition for our Spring sensory bin. I kept it simple and added only a field corn and black bean filler. We have a big bin of this stuff ready to go for sensory play. It’s a great tactile sensory material that little hands love to dig through. I poured it all into our water table so both of my girls could play easily in the bin. The height is perfect for my one year old.
To make the robins, follow these directions. Be sure to make the worms, because we used them in the sensory bin today. I hid a few in the field corn and placed the rest on the top of the sensory bin. My four year old had fun burying the worms and then scooping up big piles of corn to find them. She practiced a few preschool math concepts like one-to-one correspondence by counting out the worms. She put them one by one into the separate robins on the egg carton. My 1 year old had fun just playing in the field corn. This was a great sensory experience for her!
Having our sensory bin outside on a warm spring day was so much fun and a great way to kick off Spring!
