What I love about sensory bins is that you can make them out of ANYTHING! Whatever you have on hand can become a sensory bin.

We eat A LOT of oatmeal so we always have some on hand. We’ve also been saving our egg cartons and formula tins for crafts and activities. So I thought, why not try using them together. Let me tell you, it was a success!
Along with the oatmeal and recyclable items, we also threw in some letters and a few other small items. The kids had fun scooping the oatmeal into the individual pockets of the egg cartons and putting oatmeal in the formula tins to make “alphabet soup”.
To make this exact bin, here’s what you’ll need:
Oatmeal Sensory Bin
- Dry Oatmeal
- Wooden letters
- Measuring Cups and Spoons
- Large Bin
- Egg Cartons
- Formula Tins or any other tin
- Just throw all these items together and voila! Your child will be entertained for a while. I also laid out a king sized sheet so that the oatmeal wouldn't fall on the floor. It made clean up SUPER easy!
