Fall Sensory Bins for Preschool

In my opinion, every household needs an awesome Fall sensory tub at one point or another. It is just so much fun and it is one sensory activity that kids come back to over and over. In this post, we will share some amazing Fall sensory bin ideas that you can easily make at home.

Several of the materials in them are already in your home, so it makes it all the easier to put together. So come along and get some ideas for sensory bins for preschool, sensory bins for toddlers and even for older children.

In this post, we will share some amazing Fall sensory bin ideas that you can easily make at home.

Fall Sensory Bins for Preschool

Preschoolers are such open books and such little sponges! They want to learn. Preschoolers want to explore the world. They are hungry for making sense of things and enjoy their experiences of discovery and investigation. Sensory bins are a perfect outlet for that. Many families crate sensory bins for their children regularly. Some love to make seasonal sensory bins.

Toddlers and Preschoolers love to learn about different holidays and celebrations through sensory bin play. We have made some Fall sensory bins every year because it is our favorite season of the year and the they have been so much fun. We will show you the one we made this year.

How to make a Fall Sensory Bin

There are some sensory bins that are better for older children because they have smaller pieces (like rice and beans). You can use white rice, yellow rice, red rice or a mix like dirty rice. You can also use colored rice. We love using corn kernels, garbanzo beans, and lentils. The list of Fall sensory bins for preschool in this post offers great ideas, too. Take some time to visit them to find more ideas and inspiration.

Here are some great materials for Preschool sensory bins:

There are sensory bins for toddlers, too. You can always adjust all of the materials to make sure that they don’t contain materials that could be choking hazards for younger children that still mouth things. For a toddler-safe fall sensory bin, instead of beans, rice, lentils, corn kernels, you can use nothing or cut-up flowers (mums or daisies). You can also use giants marshmallows (they have different Fall colors), pieces of crinkled paper in Fall colors, Cheerios or cane sugar.

How to Play with a Fall Sensory Bin

Sensory bins for preschoolers can be as simple or as complex and messy as you want them to be. I suggest having a designated place for the sensory bin. Find a place where there can be a small broom and dustpan as well as a trash can nearby and that the area is easy to clean afterwards. If the sensory bin involves paint or other wet materials, I suggest considering doing it outside.


The sensory bin can go on a small table or on the floor (on a tablecloth). The children can be sitting or standing during play. Once the place is set up, it is time for the fun to begin. The way I like to do it: I invite my children not come over and take a look. I let them explore while I sit back and observe. While they investigate, I pay attention to their conversations to see how much they know.

I listen to their vocabulary, if they know the names of all the objects in the sensory bin and what they pay attention to most and what is completely ignored. Then I step in. I introduce new vocabulary, review the words they already know, I give equal attention to all materials and talk about them and let the children join in the conversation. We have fun digging in, burying objects, playing with different props and then continue with the fun.
