Fall Sensory Bin

Fall Sensory Bin is the perfect way for children to explore the fall season! Sensory activities are full of ways kids can learn about textures, sounds, smells, and colors. We love fall, and we love sensory bins! This autumn sensory bin is easy to create using items you may already have around your house and yard.


The first step is to take any kind of container you have and fill it up with the mixture of popcorn kernels.

Next, add all your fall items into the container. You can gather natural items such as:


a variety of nuts

small branches

cinnamon sticks

or pick up a few fall items from the craft store! We’ve made fall sensory bins with both natural items and store bought in the past.

Next, bury some and leave some on top!

Use a scoop or your hands to dig through and find all the fun fall items.

Let us know how you and your child like this fall sensory bin activity!!!
