I’ve been looking for some winter sensory bin inspiration recently and came across some gorgeous sensory play ideas!
Here are the Top Ten Winter Sensory Bins that I’ve found so you can save your time finding fun ideas and spent it making these bins instead!
We do a new sensory bin nearly every week at my house. They are a great way to fill up a bit of time in-between activities that require more set-up and clean-up, and they can be a great way to encourage kids to practice skills like scooping or using their pincer grasp that they may be more reluctant to do in more “academic set-ups.”
Sensory play is a great way to engage children’s minds at a deeper level, as sensory stimulation can help create deeper memories.
Winter Sensory Bin Ideas:
Our Hot Chocolate Cloud Dough is completely taste-safe with only three ingredients – likely ones you already have in your cupboards during the winter.
This one is a total favourite of mine! Katy & The Big Snow is a classic children’s book and was used to inspired this snow-plow sensory bin from The Golden Gleam.
Or, if you have a Frozen fan in the house (um, and who doesn’t?) this Frozen Sensory Bin is such a gorgeous use of a common pantry staple!
Do you want to melt a snowman? (Awesome idea from Munchkins and Moms!)
Miss G would absolutely flip for this Fairy Winter Wonderland from Rhythms of Play! Or, if you’d rather a differ sort of Winter Wonderland, check out this 1-ingredient sledding sensory bin from How Wee Learn.
We’re a bit fascinated by polar bears at the moment, so I know that this Winter Icy Pretend Play from Happy Hooligans would be a crowd-pleaser, and I love all of the different presentations of “ice.”
