Valentine’s Sensory Bin

It’s been a while since I shared a sensory bin, and I’ve got quite a few sensory bin ideas swirling around in my head that I plan to put to use in the next few months.  However, I’ve been drawing a blank for Valentine’s Day!  So I took last year’s bin….

and added a few new items.

This year’s Valentine’s sensory bin contains:

  • lima beans
  • crystal pink and red hearts (vase filler type things)
  • plastic heart containers
  • rose petals (new)
  • felt roses (new)
  • varying sizes of red glitter hearts (new)
  • small wooden pink and red hearts (new)

I could probably just set out a bin full of beans and The Littlest Apple would be content, but I can tell he was excited by all the “pretty” stuff too.

    I’d been struggling with what to put in mine too – I have some things but couldn’t come up with the “filler” – never thought of beans!! Thank you 🙂

  • Such a great idea! Have a wonderful weekend!

  • That sensory bin in gorgeous!!

    I just gave you an award on my blog. If you want to check it out, it’s here:

    I made my first sensory tub totally inspired by this one!
    Plus I babbled about how awesome all your sensory tub ideas are! I’m excited to do oceans.. my son loves looking at the colored rocks at the pet store.. what a good excuse to buy some that doesn’t involve a fish! lol 🙂
    Thanks so much! 🙂

  • Love it! I made one for my little ones with those same heart gems and heart containers from Target. I added in some white pom poms. But yours is much cuter!

  • Great suggestions for what to use in the sensory tub. I can’t wait to do one of our own!
