Sensory bins are an easy win at our house! We like to change up our sensory bins regularly. So, I often find myself looking at premade sensory bins for ideas.
The benefits of sensory play are huge, but the biggest draw for sensory play at our home is that it engages my kids for long stretches of time and helps my kids regulate and relax.
Naturally, you can take an idea and run with it and create your own sensory play experience, but curating the perfect sensory bin can take time. So, sometimes it’s fun to grab a premade sensory kit!
Why should you buy premade sensory bins & kits?
You might want to buy a premade sensory bin or kit because:
– It saves time! Skip hunting down all the individual pieces and coloring the rice/sand/beans. If you buy a kit, your child can start playing right away!
– Might be cheaper. Some items are only found in bulk, so you may save money by just buying what you need in a premade sensory bin!
– They make great gift ideas. If grandma is asking what the kids want for their birthdays, you can point them towards a premade sensory bin that your child will enjoy for hours.
– They have unique parts! Many premade sensory bins have very unusual pieces that may be hard to find. Make things easier by buying the kit you love and getting exactly what you want!
