We love sensory bins over here. They are great for learning and exploring our senses and mostly just plain fun. We make a majority of our sensory bins in the plastic containers you can buy at Walmart. However, you can turn everyday toys into sensory bins too. That is just what I did with our wheelbarrow. It was a big hit with my boys.
What I used:
Little Tikes wheelbarrow, birdseed, small containers, and the toys that came with their wheelbarrow. Oh, I forgot we added a few plastic carrots and foam ones too we had.
What I did:
Simply filled the wheelbarrow with birdseed and now they had a new sensory bin to play in. My boys love playing in birdseed and I think the birds and squirrels do too.
They had a blast scooping and pouring the birdseed which is great for motor skills and hand eye coordination. They got to explore through touch, sight, smell, and sound. I told them not to eat it even though it probably wouldn’t hurt them if they did put a little in their mouth. This is very messy as you can see. The deck was covered in birdseed. I expect that. This is not our first or last time playing in a sensory bin full of birdseed. It is often a go to activity over here.

I love bird seed for sensory play! One time I put it in my 4-year-old’s sled – just for something different to play in. Best part is that the neighborhood wildlife help with the clean-up!
Some times simple is best! This would be a great share for the party!
