ABC Sensory Bin

Last year about this time we had a Button Sensory Bin. We loved it. Now we have a slight take on part of it with an ABC Sensory Bin.

We have been using these buttons and letter tiles forever. It was just after Halloween my youngest walks up with the alphabet buttons, bin, rice and the Appletters. She asked if it would be okay to play. I said sure. She then put the bin together and asked for the last few items.

What you need: Big Bag of Buttons: Alphabet, Appletters, cups, easy grip tweezers and rice.

She played with this bin for over a week. She loves it. She likes matching tiles to buttons. She would also gather all button and tiles in the cup and then name the letters as she pulled them out.

A second activity we did with this was match up the letters to the ABCs on the page. I used the ABC Dot Marker Upper case for this. I printed all the pages on one page.

I also had my youngest pull out the letters in her name. It was great for looking for letters and learning name. Then putting the letters in order.

Sensory bins are fun and some times it is fun just exploring what is in the bin and not worrying about anything else.

Here are some other fun ABC Activities and Printables:

    Thank you so much for sharing. I am homeschooling my children and your ideas really add to our current curriculum. I love the hands on pages.

    What a fun sensory bin. I love that your daughter came up with the whole thing herself. I should give my kids more opportunities to do that because their ideas would probably be better than mine. :)

    Ha ha! Is it a sign of using sensory bins a lot when your kids start making them up themselves? My daughter puts one together every now and then – I love that initiative! Thanks for sharing this letter bin -my daughter is very interested in letters right now and will love this idea.

    Hi, I really like the alphabet sensory table. This activity encourages letter recognition in a fun way. I can’t seem to find the A through Z dot printable that is shown in the photos above. I would like to print it to use with my sensory play.

        When I click the link that is just above the picture, it says “page not found.” When I click the link that you provided, I do see the individual dot pages for upper and lower case letters, but not the page that has the entire alphabet that is shown in the pictures. Am I doing something wrong here? LOL

          In that post there is a link to where you can download them. Everything is on a download page. Look for the link that says “Click here to download the ABC Dot Marker Upper & Lower Case” That will take you to the page where you can download them.

          • Faye says:

            Okay, when I click the link, “Click here to download the ABC Dot Marker Upper & Lower Case” there are four choices: “ABC Upper Case Dot” “ABC Upper Case Dot & Trace Letter” “ABC Lower Case Dot” and “ABC Lower Case Dot Trace Letter.” I scrolled through each one of those pages, but still did not see the page that appears above that the little girl is working on with the alphabet manipulatives. Thanks for updating the link; I was able to go to the page from there.

            As stated in the post I printed them all on one page. That is an option you can use in pdfs. You can print more than one page on a paper. So I worked until I had all 26 letters on the paper and printed them. There is not one pdf will all of them on it.

            Here is a post that has some directions to help you print them all on one page: http://3dinosaurs.com/wordpress/index.php/free-monster-abc-number-wall-cards/

            Or wait until next week where I post about those ABC again and have directions there how to print them all on one paper.

          I also updated the link in the post. It was missing one thing to make it work.

    Okay, thank you so much, Cassie, I missed the part that explained how you did it. I will take a look and work on it! :-)

  6. What a great sensory bin – I’m going to start introducing this to T very soon.

    Thank you for linking up to Tuesday Tots and just popping by to let you know that I will be featuring this over on Rainy Day Mum this week.
