Sensory Play can be so much fun. It can be messy too, but if you are brave enough to do it, it can be so rewarding! Your kids will spend hours happily playing and learning in the process. We love to do themed unit studies and themed activities around the holidays.
Here are some really fun Valentine’s Day Themed Sensory Bins and Sensory Ideas that you can do with your kids at home. Most of these items you can pick up at a dollar store!
Valentine’s Goop Science Sensory Play Oobleck Activity from Little Bins for Little Hands – this bin uses those cute little red hot candies!
Valentine’s Day Sensory Bin with Colored Rice from Learn Play Imagine – this tub uses dyed rice. It’s so pretty!
How to Make a Valentine’s Sensory Tub that Toddlers will Love from Baby Savers – I love this detailed post showing exactly how to create a sensory tub. This is great if you’ve never made one before.
Learning and Exploring through Play has some great sensory activities. There are sensory boxes, tubs, bags and more!
