HOW TO MAKE AN EASTER SENSORY BINEaster Sensory Bin Spring Sensory Play

Easy Easter Sensory Bin Play On-The-Go! 

How great is this super simple and travel-friendly Easter sensory bin below! Close the lid and take it with you. An Easter sensory bin doesn’t get much simpler than this for hands-on play. Our Easter sensory bin is especially great for hands-on play on-the-go!  

Easter will be celebrated away with family, so I am busy packing up little activities for Liam to enjoy and have as a diversion when he is feeling restless. This will also give family members something fun to engage in with him.  I am fond of these snap close bins for easy travel and stacking. Again, so simple and fun!

  1. Thanks so much for featuring my Spring/Easter Sensory Bin! My 2.5 year old son has had SO much fun with it over the past week! Really like your idea of creating a sensory bin in a “lockable” container. Will be going on a short family holiday soon and am definitely going to use this idea!
