This is a fun and easy sensory bin idea for toddlers and preschoolers using pom poms in water!
I know I know pom poms in water? Sounds strange but trust me I’ve done it before and it really is a lot of fun!
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

The set up for this sensory bin is very easy. Place all the pom poms you have (or as many as you wish to submerge into water) in a sensory bin and then add water.
My three year old convinced me to add all of our pom poms to the sensory bin. I don’t advocate this as the clean up is more. But it was a lot of fun for her. I had this sensory bin out for several days.
Add a few pitchers of different sizes. This will allow your little one to pour the pom pom water mix.
I also added some scoopers for a fine motor element. They have small holes that will drain the water and so can be used to scoop up the pom poms.
Make sure to add towels under the sensory bin in order to minimize the water clean up.
This was such a great hit with my three year old that she played with it for three days. After each play we removed I removed the water and add fresh water when she wanted to play with it again.
Now you are asking yourself am I going to ruin my pom poms if I put them in water? And the answer is no! I just use regular pom poms that I purchased at a craft store and as long as I squeeze out all the water and set them to dry on a towel they are good to use again. And yes they are just as soft and fluffy and fun as before!
