Why Are Sensory Bins Beneficial? 

Before we jump any further into this guide, we first think that it would be a good idea to give you a better understanding of why sensory bins are such great tools for development.

To cut a long story short, if you aren’t overly familiar with sensory bins, they’re essentially a learning apparatus that provides children with the opportunity to engage in tactile learning!

This means that children, when provided with a sensory bin, will be able to enjoy new sights, sounds, feels and experiences that traditional styles of learning might not allow. 

Another great benefit about sensory bins is that they can be customized to reflect a range of different things, including topics of learning, various books, different seasons of the year and even all of the different holidays that many of us celebrate throughout the year, too…and Valentine’s Day is certainly no exception!

Let’s go ahead and move on to our next section to learn more about how to make your very own valentine’s day sensory bin.

What You’ll Need

What You’ll Need

In order to make your rose petal valentine sensory bin, you’re first going to need to make sure that you have all of the necessary supplies. Let’s take a look at what you are going to need to make sure that you have below:

  • Fake rose petals (we recommend dried in various colors)
  • Plastic container
  • Cups and scoopers
  • Fake rose stems
  • Fake leaves

Keep in mind that these are just some of the general things that you can opt to include in your sensory bin. If there are any additional items that you might like to add surrounding love and Valentine’s Day, then please feel free to do so.

Just make sure that they are children-friendly and safe to use.

Step-By-Step Instructions

Once you have made sure that you have everything that you need to make the sensory bin, you will then be ready to create it! Below, check out the instructions to make sure that you are able to make your very own sensory bin without a hitch:

1. Take the plastic container and set it somewhere in the classroom or home. You should make sure that the area you choose is spacious enough for your children to be able to safely play with the sensory bin without getting injured or not having enough room to move.

2. Once you have selected the area in which the sensory bin will stay, you can then go ahead and add in all of the rose petals that you have picked.

We recommend that you use a range of colors to increase engagement, as well as to encourage children to learn their colors.

3. After you have added in all of the rose petals, you can then go ahead and place the rose stems and leaves over the top, before then finishing up with the scoopers and cups that you have opted to use in the sensory bin. 

If you feel that this is too basic, there are plenty of other things that you can add to the sensory bin to help elevate the overall learning experience. These objects can be tied to the theme of love and Valentine’s Day, such as little stuffed bears, Valentine’s Day books and more. 

Remember, while the children are playing with the sensory bin,  (see also: Two Autumn Sensory Bins )you should make sure to support their learning experience by tying it in with the Valentine’s Day holiday.

You can share information with them about the holiday and even ask them open-ended questions to support independent thinking.
