Sensory Bins for Fall 

The weather is changing, friends. Long hours languishing outside are numbered…

And if you have a little one, the transition can be tough. I have a kiddo who adores the creativity, play prompt, and limitless play associated sensory bins. If you have that child, too, this list is going to help you make the transition from summer to fall seamlessly.

If you’re new to setting up sensory bins, here are a few of our favorite sensory staples:

  • BASE: rice, beans, flax seeds, water beads, dried beans, wooden beads, pasta, peas
  • FILLERS (real or toy): apples, leaves, pumpkins, pinecones, twigs/sticks, nuts, beads
  • THEMES FOR FALL: fall colors, apples, pumpkins, harvest, scents of Fall

Let’s get to the fun, fall sensory bins!
