Pretty Pink Sensory Bin: Toddler Sensory Play Ideas
Hey, guys! Today I want to share with you a sensory bin that I put together for my toddler to play with. It’s really easy to throw together and was so much fun for her to play in, that’s one of the things that I love about Easy Sensory Bin Recipes by Theme.
You probably have everything needed on hand and what you don’t have you can make substitutes. The whole idea is to just let your child play by presenting the tools for open-ended play.

What I used:
- Pyrex dish
- Pink and red dyed rice
- White foam hearts
- Heart cookie cutters
- Ikea children pots and pans set
- Red and white pom poms
- A few spoons
- A kiddie tea set
The put together of this sensory bin was simple. I dyed the rice the and cut some hearts out of white foam the night before. When I woke the next morning I just grabbed some heart cookie cutters, their Ikea pots and pans, red and white pom poms and threw it all in the dish. I then checked my rice and pour it on top of all that stuff. Sat the dish on our little table and waited for the girls to wake up.
My toddler woke up first this morning as usual. After her potty time, she came downstairs to bug me about breakfast, only to be stopped by the “Ooo! Pretty Pink” sensory bin. She played in it before breakfast and was all too happy to get back to it after breakfast.
After breakfast, my preschooler started to play with the sensory bin and she brought down one of the tea sets and they did a little scooping and pouring and took the foam hearts and matched them up with the cookie cutter hearts that I used and made them stick inside to make heart bowls. They started to fill the bowls to see how much rice it would take to make the bottoms drop. Now that was fun to watch. My toddler came in the kitchen showing me her rice filled the bowl and soon as I turned around the bottom fell, LOL! The face that she made was priceless!
This ladies and gents was a winner in my book. It had her thinking and she even started to match up the different sized hearts, which was beautiful to see.
