Square Sensory Bin

Square sensory bin

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.

With this sensory bin we did some color sorting. For the color sorting she would just put each color in their own piles. She also did some size sorting and worked on some fine motor skills. I’m so happy to say that she is working better with the tongs and we are having less dropping.

So this sensory bin is really easy to put together. Now, I used some old ball balls that I had from doing my girl’s hair. Just cut the band off and cleaned them up. They work very well for this bin. But you can get some cube acrylic pieces and there something like the same thing. Link in the list.

What I used:

  • Acrylic squares (multiple sizes)
  • Dyed rice or plain rice
  • Sensory bin


  1. Dump it all in the sensory bin
  2. Let the kid have it.

Yup! It’s that easy to put together.

I let this bin sit out for a week leaving it open for playing with during them I need something to do times. I kept finding squares all over the room with this one. She was sort g them in little piles all over the room. I found some lined up against the wall in order of size.

I would like to say this sensory bin was a hit, but I would be lying to y’all and I gonna keep it real. The squares were a hit! Heck they still are. I was taking the bin down getting ready for the current week and they made me put the squares in their table box.
