Well it’s a new month, so for my girls that means that we get to explore a new color. Last month we explored the color Green and this month we are exploring the color Yellow. So I am going to share one of my easy sensory bin recipes by theme with you all today. This sensory bin was fun for my toddler.

Welcome to another Playful Preschool Wednesday post, where a group of bloggers share some free hands on play thematic activities for preschool aged kids. To see more fun hands on play activities, please click on the links of my team members. Last week was all about Life Cycles and there were some fantastically fun posts shared, this week is all about Space.
I put together this sensory bin in under a minute and it was fun. So much fun that even though we are working on a different theme this week, this bin is still sitting out and more stuff has been added to it since I typed up this here post.

Omgoodness! I’m super excited to share this easy sensory bin recipe by theme with you guys. Why am I excited you ask? Simple, because I did not put this together. As a matter of fact I don’t think I would have even thought this up, and I put together a lot of sensory bins. So I don’t really know how to go about talking about this one so let’s start here.
For the month of March the color that we are exploring is Green. We love green right now, in all shades. So last week while working on our Calendar Time wall in the color section my toddler told me she was making a green bin that day. I looked at this kid and said “Well have at it.”
Last week we started playing with squares, so I made this really simple easy sensory bin recipe by theme.
The object of this bin was to help reinforce the square shape for this month. Throughout the month we will be working with the she square. So this for us is a great starter bin for the month And super easy to put together.
To be honest we didn’t do much learning during this week but I wanted to keep with our theme for Playful Preschool ( a group of educators and mothers providing hands on play ideas for preschoolers every Wednesday). This week the Playful Preschool theme is rainbows, last week we played with transportation and the team shared some really great activities.
When we think of rainbows we think of spring. We love to watch the flowers bloom and the constant rain fall. But what we really like to watch happens after the rain. You can find them in the sky or in the puddles on the ground. We’re talking about them colorful rainbows. I absolutely love rainbows and I hope that my kids love them as much as I do.
The toddler and I have been playing with the Alphabets this month and she has been having lots of fun with them. One way that we played with the alphabets last week was with a fun sensory bin.
The activities that we played with last week all used bottle caps so to keep with my bottle cap use I decided that this sensory bin would use our uppercase bottle cap alphabets. What a great idea this was.
One of our favorite meals in my home is Red Beans and Rice, among the girls. This Sensory Bin was inspired by my second child picking all the beans from her red beans and rice.
What makes red beans and rice so special is that you can have them as a main dish (which we often do) or a side dish. My preschooler loved this sensory bin, after I dressed it up for her. My toddler really enjoyed the challenge of this sensory bin and the tools that I added for extra fun were perfect.
Hey guys, I hope that you all had a lovely weekend. Today I want to share one of my Easy Sensory Bin Recipes with you all. This Sensory Bin was super fun and most importantly for me, easy to put together. The only requirement is that you have enough room in your freezer for everything.
You probably already know that we love sensory bins and sensory activities over here. So it was only right that I share a sensory bin that was befitting of the weather that were having. We’ve had some great weather but what we really had was a lot of rain and cold weather. What does rain and cold mixed together make? It sure isn’t snow! So an Ice Sensory Bin is what I will share.
