Our Favorite Spring Themed Sensory Bins
Sensory bins are an excellent way to help your child adapt to the changing season through their sensory development. That is why we share some of our favorite spring-themed sensory bins that we know your little one will enjoy. From our classroom to your home, these sensory activities are sure to get you both in the spring spirit.
Alphabet Flowers Sensory Bin
We love this spring-themed sensory bin from Teaching 2 and 3-Year-Olds. Your little one will be blooming with joy over how much fun they will be having, all while practicing their ABCs. This particular activity is a great hands-on way to help your preschooler improve their literacy skills. On the days that they are not in the classroom with us, of course!
Duck Pond Sensory Play
What could be more fun than creating a sensory play duck pond? This spring-themed sensory bin from Fun Littles only requires water beads and a handful of pond items. Once you have set up your little one’s container, they’ll have hours of fun guiding their ducks and frogs through their squishy pond.
Sunflower Field Sensory Play
We’re sure we are not the only ones who beam with joy anytime sunflowers are involved. This activity from Buggy and Buddy is a field of wonder all within your preschooler’s sensory bin. To create your sunflower field, you will need a few items like green split peas and tiny flower pots. When you have gotten everything together, you’ll have an activity that is the perfect summer and spring combination.
Spring Bug Sensory Bin
We can’t forget about all the critters that help springtime to blossom. Happy Toddler Playtime has a significant spring-themed sensory bin for some seasonal education-focused fun.

Too Many Carrots Sensory Play
As the name suggests, this sensory bin is an excellent tag with the children’s book Too Many Carrots. Wonderfully spring-themed, this activity only requires coffee beans (for dirt, of course) and a few garden essentials. Get your complete how-to from the link above.
Color-Changing Water Play
It would not be a spring sensory bin blog without some color mixing fun. We love this color-changing spring-themed sensory bin from My Bored Toddler. Why? Because it’s easy to do and we know you will love it too. All you need to create this bin for your preschooler is a bin, water, food coloring, and a few garden watering tools. Your little one will love mixing the colors of spring, and you’ll love the quick and easy clean-up that follows.
These days, we know any activity that helps to teach our preschoolers the importance of cleanliness is a significant plus. This ‘On the Farm’ activity from Coffee Cups and Crayons is all about making sure their tiny toy animals stay clean after a day on the farm. They’ll learn that it requires water, soap, and some extra washing to remain 100% clean and germ-free.
