Since my little lady still puts everything in her mouth, I am constantly in search of fun and edible sensory activities. I thought why not try something fun, colorful, and yummy?! The Fruit Loop sensory bin was born! I love sensory bins because they help my daughter develop her fine-motor skills and experience different textures using her senses. I love that my little lady gets to have fun learning!

How We Did It

Fruit Loop Sensory Bin

First, I added Fruit Loops to the bin. (For a healthier option, try plain Cheerios or other low-sugar cereals.)

Then I added sand toys that I got from the dollar section at Target.

Then I let my daughter play! She flipped the green toy car over and began filling it up with the cereal.

She then used the tablespoon to scoop up the fruit loops and put them in the dump truck.

I threaded the Fruit Loops onto the piper cleaner and then she had fun taking them all off. This activity really was fruity educational fun!

Quick tip: I use a "mess mat" under these types of activities for a quick and easy cleanup. My mess mat is simply a plastic shower curtain from the dollar store that I use to quickly dispose of any mess that is made.
