Looking for a fun edible rainbow sensory bin that is perfect for spring or St. Patrick’s Day? Since my little lady still puts everything in her mouth, I am constantly in search of fun and edible sensory activities. I thought why not try something fun, colorful and yummy! The Fruit Loop rainbow sensory bin was born!
Every wonder what’s the deal with sensory bins? Check out sensory bin 101 to get the low down on the why, what, and how of sensory bins.
I love sensory bins because they help promote the development of fine motor skills. They also allow the child to experience different textures through experimenting using their senses. I love that my little lady is learning but doesn’t even know it because she is having such fun!
FOR THIS ACTIVITY YOU NEED:
–Sensory bin container (I use a plastic container bought from Target)
How to Setup Your Rainbow Sensory Bin
First add the fruit loops to the container
Then add the toys and measuring utensils. These toys are sand toys that I got at the dollar section at Target
She flipped the green toy car over and began filling it up with the fruit loops
She then used the Tablespoon measuring spoon to scoop up the fruit loops and put them in the dump truck
I threaded the fruit loops onto the piper cleaner and then she had fun taking them all off
She had so much fun with this rainbow sensory bin and I didn’t have to worry about her putting anything in her mouth. This is great for older babies or toddlers!
TIP: I use a “mess mat” under these types of activities for a quick and easy cleanup. My mess mat is simply a plastic shower curtain from the dollar store that I use to quickly dispose of any mess that is made.
