Spring is in the air! With the flowers sprouting up around us, let the kids get their hands dirty with their very own garden sensory bin! Let them scoop, dig, and shovel while you teach them about fruits, vegetables, and the letter G in this Garden sensory bin!
As part of my ongoing series, ABC Sensory, we’ve been exploring a different sensory activity for each letter of the alphabet. And for today’s letter G sensory bin, we’ll be making a garden sensory bin! Find out below just how easy it was to make. Plus, I created a FREE checklist to help you along the way.

Letter G Shapes (upper case and lower case)
Fill your bin with black beans.
Add plastic fruits, vegetables, and shovels.
Be sure to add letter G shapes to your bin. (I like to use letter shapes in my sensory bins to reinforce the letter we’re learning about.)
Then let the kids go to town planting and digging in their garden sensory bin!
Make It A Game
Try pushing all the plastic food and letter G shapes under the black beans so they’re “hiding.” Then let your kids dig through the black beans to try and find them all!
Sneak In Some Learning
As your child is playing, try asking questions like:
“What letter are we learning about today?”
“What sound does the letter G make?”
“G is for what?… Garden!”
Try Making Your Own Garden Sensory Bin
This garden sensory bin is a great way to celebrate spring. And it’s so easy to make! Give the kids a fun way to learn about the letter G while they plant, dig, and play with their very own garden sensory bin!
