This Easter sensory bin is such a simple idea, yet it has provided HOURS of fun for all three of my girls. As I have mentioned before we have a HUGE collection of plastic Easter Eggs and I am always looking for new and different ways to use them. This sensory bin was a spur of the moment attempt to keep Clara (11 months old) occupied while we decorated the house for Easter. I filled our sensory bin, which is just a large under the bed storage bin that I picked up at A.C. Moore, with all of our plastic Easter Eggs and the Bunny Egg Dipper Tongs that we use when we color Easter Eggs. (I was excited that they get to use that more than once during the season too!) Later I added an Egg Carton that they enjoyed filling up with eggs.
Since there are a variety of sizes of eggs Juliette especially liked putting the little egg in the medium egg inside the large egg and surprising Emily with it.
I thought it was pretty amazing that this bin kept a 7 year old, 4 year old and 11 month old busy and playing with each other. These pictures make me smile every time I see them!
After a few days Clara discovered that is is also a lot of fun to climb into the sensory bin of eggs!!
