Valentine Sensory Bin

We were long over due for a new sensory bin. Since Valentine's Day is coming up I decided to create a Valentine/heart themed one.
I had everything on hand, some left over from last year's Valentine sensory bin. Inside the bin there is:
  • Red, pink and purple pom poms (thanks to
  • Cotton balls
  • Red and purple sparkly pipe cleaners (thanks to
  • Small heart boxes
  • Some hearts cut out of craft foam
  • A small mailbox
  • Some last years Buzz Lightyear Valentines
It was a hit and Alex is having a great time exploring and playing mail man, delivering Valentine's.


  1. Very cute sensory bin! I love the valentine's with the mail box. Visiting from I can teach my child.

  4. Thanks for sharing this at WOTT! I need to put together our Valentine's sensory bin too. I have been having trouble figuring out what to use as the base. We just did cotton balls and Boogie wasn't too thrilled. I am thinking maybe red beans. Hope you will link up again this week!
