Make Fun Mini Alphabet Sensory Bins

Try these mini alphabet sensory bins for a little hands on early learning this year. Sensory play makes for a rich learning environment to help spark the curiosity of any child. Engaging and plain old fun, rice sensory bins are a great way to engage with your child and engage several children at once!

Hands On Early Learning Sensory Play

Build language, letter sounds and letter recognition with items around the house. Sensory bins also build social skills and cooperative play, read my post on All About Sensory Bins here and check out our favorite fillers. What will you add?

Materials Needed

  • mini bins
  • letters, upper and lower case (use flash cards, puzzle pieces, laminated print outs) I found an awesome set at Trillium Montessori that included some great photo images to add to the letters. You may have to contact them as I don’t see them readily available, but it should be easy to come up with your own too!
  • mini objects to match letter sounds that you are working on
  • play dough and letter stamps for extra sensory play and learning
  • sensory filler such as dried peas or rice
