Shape Match Sensory Bin is a fun sensory bin using shredded paper! It’s a great way to learn and practice shapes with your toddler or preschooler!

Have you ever used paper as a sensory bin filler? It is a fun and easy material that toddlers love and so will you. I use Valentine’s Day crinkly paper because we were doing this activity around then but you can use any color shredded paper or crinkly paper.
Set Up of Shape Match Sensory Bin
For the shapes I used out color blocks. You can use any time of shape blocks that you have at home!

Fill your sensory bin with the shredded paper or crinkly paper and hide the shapes inside the sensory bin.
On a roll of white paper, use a pencil to trace the shape of the blocks. Go over the shapes with a sharpie so that they are easier to see. Tape the sheet on the floor beside the sensory bin.
Invite your toddler to dig through the paper and find the shapes! Have them match the shapes to the shapes on the piece of paper.
My toddlers loved this shape match sensory bin activity and they loved the paper as well. And yes they tossed the paper everywhere! When they were done, I asked them to cleanup the paper and put it back the sensory bin! In the end my clean up time was less than 3 minutes!
