Blue Circle Sensory Bin

Circle Sensory Bin

My toddler is currently working on the shape Circle. She has been having all kind of fun with the circle and I thought it would be nice to give her a circle sensory bin. If you read this blog then you know that I like things to be easy while at the same time getting my learning across. So here is another Easy Sensory Bin Recipe for you guys showcasing the Shape Circle.


I have been playing with my toddler lately and I have been kind of following her lead, she has been focusing on the Shape of the circle. We have been learning all about its roundness and the many sizes that it can be. We have looked at all the different places that you can find a circle and she is just absolutely fascinated with it. So I put together this Circle Sensory Bin when we were first playing with it. This seemed to have been a hit with her and it was able to hold her interest throughout the week that we were learning the color blue.

Circle Sensory Bin

The assembly of this sensory bin was really easy because I had everything already on hand. So it took me no more than a minute to put it together.

To put this sensory bin together I added:

  • Neon dyed beans
  • Circle cookie cutters
  • Bracelets
  • Blue bottle caps
  • Blue pom poms


Dump all the items in a bin and leave it for the child to discover.

I left this sensory bin out for the week that we are learning the color blue for her to play with during our down times or whenever she felt like it. She really enjoyed it and spent a lot of time with the tongs picking up the little pom poms. By the end of the week she was sorting the blue beans using the tongs.

For the sorting with the tongs we used our Circle cards and she placed all the blue beans and pom poms on the blue circle card inside the circle. She actually had fun doing that for while, I thought the fun in that was going to be over quickly. The beans kept falling out the tongs, and she just wouldn’t quit, until she had about 7 beans on the circle. It was really interesting to watch her determination!


Well guys that’s all for now. I hope that you enjoyed this post and you gained something useful from it.
