150+ Sensory Bin Fillers

If you love sensory play, as much as we do, you’ll LOVE this list! From sand and pasta to cotton balls and feathers, you’ll see some old standby fillers, as well as some that you may not have thought of before. This list should inspire you to switch things up a bit and have a sens-ational (see what I did there?) time doing it!

This list of sensory bin fillers is enormous! It includes both non-food and food items, but I realize that not everyone is alright with using food as a plaything…after there’s a reason that the words “don’t play with your food” are a common utterance from parents. So if this is you, and you’d rather try out my other HUGE list of non-sensory food items, you can click here!
