When cooler weather hits, I am always on the look for some indoor activities for my son. Sensory bins are always a hit in our house and I love that I can make them themed with some simple products I have at home. With Liam’s sensory aversions, these are certainly great therapy for him right at home. This St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Bin can be made this year and put up for next year! It also requires a few extra materials that can be purchased for cheap!
St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Bin
Sensory bin items
1. Add a 1/2 tablespoon of vinegar about 15 drops regular food coloring or 5 drops gel food coloring to each bag
5. Gather your green, yellow, and orange pom-pom balls, gold coins, gold bells, etc. and place them in a small Tupperware container.
6. Pour your dry green and remaining white rice onto your sensory bin items
*supervise while kids play as this bin does contain small items
This is perfect — what a great way to celebrate with your kiddos this St. Patrick’s Day in a great sensory based play. This bin may take a little time to make while you wait for the colored rice to dry, but I promise it is well worth the wait!
