Easy Baby Sensory Bins

Learning starts when all the senses are engaged. Here is a list of 10+ easy baby sensory bins you can do with your little one from 12 months and up.

Finding baby sensory bins that are appropriate for your 12 month old can be challenging. And finding ideas for even younger babies can be even more challenging. It is perhaps the number one question I get from parents – “Do you have any sensory bin ideas for babies as young as 9 months?”.

Although, these ideas are best done with babies 12 months and older they can be adapted for younger babies. I did them with my twins when they were as young as 10 months. However, I kept a very very very close eye on them but they absolutely loved them!

Here is a round up of amazing Baby Sensory Bins that you can do with your baby aged 12 months and up.
