What better way to say Happy Valentine’s Day than with Valentine sensory play. Simple to make and inexpensive, these Valentines sensory bins are a great hands-on activity to do with your kids. There are so many options for filling sensory bins. I hope you will find one to enjoy this Valentine’s Day! Check out our wonderful list below.
Valentines Sensory Bins For Playful Learning
VALENTINE SENSORY PLAY
There are so many wonderful ways to fill a sensory bin and Valentine’s Day is no exception! I have put together a collection of Valentine sensory bins that each use a different type of sensory bin filler.
Some children prefer different textures over others so try a few and see what works. If your child is not all that interested in the first one you make, try again with different sensory bin fillers. Many are low cost and easy to store for another time.
Sensory play has a lot to do with the nervous system and your child will react to how it feels, good or bad! Watch and listen to his or her reactions. You may learn a lot about what your child enjoys. I know my child definitely favors certain textures over others. We have tried many and some have been much more fun than others for him.
Make it an experiment for the two of you to try together this winter! Sensory bins can be both calming and stimulating for a child as well as engaging and educational!

Valentine Hearts Sensory Bin
This cute Valentine sensory bin uses shiny pink cellophane as a filler and plenty of heart accessories to play with.
Wintery Hearts Sensory Bin
This bin is very simple to set up with craft poly fill beads.
Colored Craft Sand
I used one small bag of red craft sand and then little items from around the house. Grated cheese container, funnel and plastic drink powder scoop were his favorite things!
Want to make your own colored sand? Here’s how you can color sand.

What a awesome round up of ideas. Thanks so much for including us! 🙂
This is a wonderful list of sensory filler ideas! For our Valentine sensory bin, we used dyed rice, but I have been eager to make sensory bins with dried beans and water beads for my son. Now I have a few new ideas 🙂
So glad you enjoyed it! Hope you will have a chance to try some more soon!
You are very welcome. I love how you use different fillers!
Awesome, all the fillers can easily adjust to any theme, season and holiday! I just remove the toys or extras and store the fillers in gallon freezer bags in a big tote until next time!
Oh fun! Last year I made one with shredded paper, fake rose petals, heart shaped boxes, lip whistles, and a few other odds n’ ends! I had fun putting it together!
