Sparkly Sensory Bin

You know we love a sensory box here and we haven't done one for quite a while, I thought I would make one to fit in with this weeks Fairy's theme...

What you need:

Make your base from the rice and glitter. Then add the rest of your bits and bobs on top.

Once the exploring is over, add scoops, spoons, sieves, pots and pans to encourage transporting, colour sorting, shape sorting, role play and language development.

Why not try our rice and pom pom sensory bin for a different sensory experience?

Pin for later.


  1. Looks fun. I'm always planning to do sensory events, but then wimp out (normally due to laziness). ;)

  2. I love a sensory bin as much as my Little Tots do - because it keeps them sooo quiet. This one is so pretty and simple we will have to give it a try #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  3. I tried to post a comment but not sure if it went.... sorry if this appears twice!
    this is a lovely idea; I haven't made a sensory bin for Daniel for a while so might give it a go this weekend

  4. Got to love a sensory bin! It's been ages since I've done one with Luke, love the sparkly bits. Ray X #toddlerapprovedtuesday

  5. These look amazing, we did a lot of sensory and messy play when Ellie was a baby but think i need to start doing some more again!

    1. We love sensory bins, we have a Valentines one at the minute and its probably the most played with thing at the moment, and all of them love it which is a bonus, no argueing about what they are playing with next!

  6. These look amazing, I think we need to start doing more sensory and messy play again x
