Easy Fall Sensory Bin

Both my mom and sister are early education teachers. And, they love it when I make something they can use in their classrooms. Last year their little learners loved playing with the Halloween Sensory Bucket. So, I thought I would make a couple of easy fall sensory bins for their classrooms.

Fall Sensory Bin Supplies:

  • Craft hay.
  • Pine cones.
  • Foam gourds and pumpkins.
  • Fake leaves.
  • Decorative corn.
  • Acorns.
  • Plastic storage bin. 
  • Optional – scissors/craft knife and tape to cut the craft hay.

This fun craft is super easy and it’s is a great sensory activity for the Fall season. 

Let’s get started on this fun and easy Fall sensory bin! First, gather all of your supplies. This will make creating this bin a lot easier. I found nearly everything I needed for the bin at the dollar store. However, I did buy the craft hay at the craft store, but one bale is enough to make several bins.

I made two Easy Fall Sensory Bins with the supplies that I bought and gathered from the neighborhood. But, I wanted to make the hay a little smaller for littler hands to play with. So, I taped it into sections and cut it into sections. This made an epic mess, so be prepared. 

After I finished cutting the hay, I put some into each plastic storage bin.  

Now, it was time to add the fun stuff! The pinecones I bought at the dollar store are pumpkin scented, and I am so excited to add another sensory layer to their play buckets. 

Each bucket was filled with pinecones, foam gourds, fake leaves, acorns, and decorative corn. 

Then, I put the lids on the buckets and shook everything up a little bit.

Finally, I wrote my mom and sister’s names on the sensory bins’ lids. 

That’s it! This is such a fun project to make for the Fall! And, I hope it has inspired you to create an Easy Fall Sensory Bin with your little ones!
