If you have a spring theme preschool learning week coming up then you definitely need to check out these spring sensory bins and sensory table ideas. You will find favorite figurines, flowers, fairy garden, trees and insects here as well as different filler ideas. You will also see an example of how to create sensory bins.
We have just began our first sensory bin challenge in our private Facebook Group. We did a vote for our first theme and it was a spring theme! All entries (who provided a spring sensory bin picture) will be entered into a hat to win an Amazon gift card.
I have created a video below showing you how to make a sensory bin. In the video you will find some sensory bin ideas, sensory bin organization and watch me create a spring theme sensory bin. Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel here.

- Fairies from Lakeshore Learning Fairy Garden

- Watch a real caterpillar become a butterfly here.
- Spring Bugs egg carton craft
- Insect 3 part cards
- Butterfy yarn spring craft
- Ladybug counting play dough mats
- How many insects in the jar?

Here are some spring sensory Bin challenge participants finished spring theme preschool sensory bins:
- Spring Fairy Garden by Nadia T
This is my spring theme sensory bin idea. I created a little flower garden area using the flower toobs. I added homemade brown playdough inside the pots so that the flowers could stick up within them. I added in random cups, tools and plastic trees that I had at home. My daughter added in fairies because she absolutely adores fairies.
