Of course Easter also means the beginning of spring and let’s not forget about the inevitable sensory activities too. After all, what could be more fun than a huge bin full of colorful eggs, pom-poms, and buttons?

I’m loving how bright and colorful this sensory bin is. The little guy had a blast putting it together. And actually, we sort of made that an activity in and of itself. He helped me add the colorful bowls, plastic eggs, poms-poms, and buttons. Definitely lots of fun!
This is totally an open-ended activity that’s really meant for your little kids to explore. You could also add a few spoons for even more scooping, pouring, and dumping fun.

You know, there was also lots of stacking and unstacking and filling up the colorful bowls and transferring pom-poms and buttons back and forth between them. Did I mention that some color sorting just kind of happened too?
