What Do You Use for Sensory Play?

There are an endless amount of things that can be used for sensory bin fillers!  And my friend, Sarah of Little Bins for Little Hands, has organized “40 Days of Sensory Bin Fillers” to celebrate them all.  For the entire month of March (and into April), 40 different mama bloggers will each be sharing a different fun filler for sensory play.  Sarah kicked off the series with a Colored Craft Sand Sensory Bin.  Today, I’m excited to share CEREAL for sensory play…

Using Cereal for Sensory Play

Cereal is perfect for a sensory bin for the little ones because it’s edible, of course!  And what better cereal to use with St. Patrick’s Day coming up than good old Lucky Charms?!

I thought about hiding some golden coins in the cereal, but hesitated to include inedible objects in an edible sensory bin with my toddler.  So I decided to keep it simple with just the cereal.  But I did toss in a scoop and some fun mini tongs that I found at our local Hobby Lobby for some fine motor skill fun.

And I increased the early learning by adding in some paper cups for sorting those colorful marshmallows, too.

I had put down a cheap plastic table cloth to “contain” the cereal.  It was messy, but definitely worth it.  (And that’s what pet dogs are for, right?)  With just a couple boxes of cereal, the kids got some much-needed sensory input, fine motor skill development, and even early math skills practice.  Oh – and breakfast, too – Ha!
