Beans and Easter eggs sensory bin is a fun and easy Easter sensory activity for toddlers and preschoolers. It’s a fantastic fine motor activity and a great way to keep little ones busy indoors!
If you follow me you know that I absolutely love using Easter eggs especially around Easter but I will also use Easter eggs anytime of the year! They make a great fine motor activity supply and they can be used with just about anything!
Easy Easter Sensory Activity
The other reason why I love Easter eggs is because my kids love them as well! For this activity I used a mix of a bunch of different beans including kidney beans, pink pinto beans and lima beans. For the full list of the beans I used see the list under supplies below.
In addition to the Easter eggs and beans, I also added measuring cups and spoons for an added fine motor element.
All three of m kids enjoyed this simple sensory bin activity. The twins used the spoons and measuring cups to fill the Easter eggs, pouring and scooping. Once their eggs were full they closed them and shodden pretending they were maracas!
Even my older daughter got her hands in there! Sensory play is great for brain development in young children but it can also be a calming effect on children of all ages.
