SENSORY BINS are quite the norm over here. Yep, just take a look at one of our typical weeks and you’ll likely see a few bins in action!
…Water bins, a tub of colored rice, a potion-making station, a bean tub, foam, pompoms, and Goop, are just a few of our favorites!
Today, I wanted to share a look at a few of our FAVORITE SENSORY BIN BASES, or FILLERS as they are called.
WHAT IS A SENSORY BIN BASE?
A sensory bin base is a FILLER you use to fill the bin! WHAT?! THAT”S IT?! YEP!
Take a look around your house and likely you’ll be able to find a safe base that can be used in your next sensory bin. You’ll need more than your typical cup, BUT sensory bins can vary in size, so decide what’s best for your little (small, medium, large) and find enough filler to make it work.

As you can see sensory bin fillers can be so many things! Be sure to think about what is SAFE for your little, look around your house, and then head to your local dollar tree… I’m sure you will find something that works!
I’d love to hear what your favorite SENSORY BIN FILLERS are in the comments. Let’s share ideas!
