Inside: This is our favorite collection of fall sensory bins for toddlers and preschoolers. Lots of hands-on fun!
After teaching for as long as I have (almost 2 decades as I write this), I’ve done a lot of observing toddlers and preschoolers at the sensory bin. No matter how we set that bin up, no matter how many hours we’ve thought of ways to add on to it, no matter all the little details we are so excited to add, there is one must.
There must be tools and materials that allow scooping and pouring.
That is what they love most about the sensory bin.
And so, I’m going to share our favorite fall sensory bins toddlers and preschoolers love.
That all involve scooping and pouring.
That work perfectly with your fall theme.
