Its almost spring here and we have started our spring themed activities. Froot loops sensory bin is the simplest rainbow themed sensory bin perfect for St. Patricks day or Spring.

Just dump a box of cereal in a bin, add some rainbow theme items available at home. We used rainbow colored cups, gears, pipecleaners, easter eggs, foam flowers and scoops.
To make it a math activity, i numbered the easter eggs on one half and marked corresponding dots on the other half. You can mix and match the colors. But i used same colors to make it self correcting.
Like with any other sensory bin, there was a lot of scoop and transfer. My LOs filled the plastic eggs with the cereal and shaked to hear the noise it made. Bonus, a lot of eating 😜.
Miss A(3yrs) matched the eggs by counting the dots. She also filled the eggs with corresponding number of cereals. Eg. – yellow egg with 5 dots will be filled with five yellow cereals. Miss D(2yrs) matched the eggs just by colors. They did thread a few cereals onto the matching pipecleaners, but soon lost interest.
They played with this bin for 20-25 mins and then filled one cup each with cereal and took off 😂. Use a sheet, its easy to contain the cereal spills.
