Learn how to make a fun and easy treasure sensory bin.  Get started with just a few simple supplies and create hours of hands-on sensory fun for the little ones!

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 T sensory play, we’ll be making a Treasure Sensory Bin!  In this post I’ll show you exactly how easy it is to make.  Plus, I created a FREE checklist to help you make your own ABC sensory bins.  Click the link to get access before getting started: FREE Idea Checklist: How To Create ABC Sensory Bins.

Start by filling your sensory bin with sand.

Add your treasure chest (we painted ours brown and gold which was a fun side project).

You can also include some letter T’s to help reinforce that T is for Treasure.

And that’s it!  Let the fun begin!

Make It A Game

Try pushing all the letter T’s under the sand and have the kids try to 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 T make?”

“T is for what?…. Treasure!”
