Fall Sensory Bin for Kids

Our fall sensory bin was a BIG hit! I loaded it up with autumn color fusion beads. They made a great “main” part of the bin and added lots of color & interest.  In the box were leaves, cork flowers (texture), old nutmeg spice container that still smelled, acorns (which Minnie LOVED counting and moving around)

Pumpkins that the kids enjoyed picking up with large tongs

Cinnamon sticks to smell & red ribbon to practice tying with

Feathers to sort, touch & TICKLE!

Foam fall shaped beads to sort, organize, touch, and feel.

Goofy enjoyed stringing the fusion beads on a shoe lace to make a necklace. They were so small it ended up being a great fine motor activity for him!

We’ve had countless hours of fun with our box. Just today the kids started asking, “What kind of bin is next?”
