With Easter just around the corner, we’ve decided to share another fun sensory bin just in time for Spring break. This adorable Easter Chick Sensory Bin will keep your little ones busy while also stimulating all of their senses. At home, we love sensory bins. I use them all the time with my son and even the neighbor kids!
Since some of our sensory bins can get a little messy, I like to keep them on a shelf in the garage. All the bins are clear so the kids can see which is which, and they’re all covered with secure lids.

Most of the sensory bins that I make are filled with water beads, sand, pom-pom balls, rocks, marbles, water, and colored beans. The base of this Easter Chick Sensory Bin is unpopped corn kernels, and all of the items inside not only match with the Easter theme but are also designed to stimulate the senses. I was able to find everything from Dollar Tree, including the corn kernels!
Don’t forget these fun things to try with all of our sensory bins:
- Challenge your little ones to fill the paper roll chicks with corn by asking how many scoops will it take to reach the top.
- Fill the eggs with corn and guess which has more corn.
- Name the colors that you see.
- Count the items inside the bin
- Name each creature
- Make up a story about your sea or beach adventure
- Close your eyes and scoop out items and try to guess what’s in your hand.
