Easter Sensory Bin

So I've been wanting to make the boys' Easter sensory bin for awhile now and today I finally assembled it! Better late than never, right?

I had a lot of fun making this bin for them! I colored rice for the first time and it was so fun and easy! The boys even helped with the food coloring and shaking of the ziploc bag!

Items in the Sensory Bin:
  • Colored Rice for scooping, pouring, dumping
  • Easter/Spring Erasers-Target $1 section
  • Easter themed measuring spoons- a gift from my sweet mama
  • Plastic Easter eggs- recycled from last year
JP's first exploration of the bin. At first he was tentative, but then he enjoyed hiding the erasers.

Little brother joined the fun! Both of them enjoyed scooping the rice.
I think CA likes it!
 I look forward to watching them explore, scoop, dump, pour,make patterns, and just have fun!

Linked up to these awesome parties!
