Easter Bunny Sensory Bin

Kids love playing with sensory bins. They’re so easy to put together too and can often be made with things that you find around the house. This Easter Bunny Sensory Bin is a really fun one that you can bring out for spring.

There are lots of different ways to make sensory bins. Feel free to swap out any of the materials listed below for what you’d prefer or what you can find easily. Just remember to take care when picking out the contents of the bin and avoid any that are small enough to pose a choking hazard (depending on what age your child is). Even with that caveat, we still like to provide close supervision while little ones are using the sensory bins.

When I used to make these for my Junior and Senior Kindergarten or day care kids, I would use simple dollar store bins with lids. I’d label them and put them away until we wanted to use them away.

This kept it really easy to rotate them, especially with those seasonal ones. If you don’t have space for this, you can easily reuse the bins instead.


Check your local dollar store or Target dollar spot to find materials for this bin.

  • Sensory bin
  • Pastel pompoms (Variety of sizes)
  • Plush bunny
  • Fabric bunnies
  • Small bunny toys
  • Plastic eggs


This is so easy to put together that you barely need any instructions. I tend to start with the pompoms and then build from there. Remember that the children are going to be able moving these around anyway once they begin to play with them.

You just want to create a display that is inviting with a variety of colors and textures to draw the kids in.

Put out the bin and invite your child to play with it. It’s fun to observe what they do (you can get some great insights into their thinking!) and sometimes I will ask some questions too to encourage more conversation about what they’re doing.

You can use these bins to teach and reinforce a variety of different vocabulary too – Can you find the pink items? Which of these items are the softest? Can you find the smallest items in the bin? etc.
