It’s a new month so to it’s time for a new sensory bin. For the February Sensory Bin, I am creating a Valentine’s Day Sensory Bin. Hearts, boxes, flowers and more.

Once again the Dollar Tree saved me. I went in for something else (this is how my story always starts) and found rose petals in pink and red. The petals are a perfect base for the Valentine’s Day sensory play.

But did you know you can order online at Dollar Tree and pick it up at the store? How easy is that!

Sensory Play with flower petals and hearts

This sensory activity will have different kinds of hearts made out of different materials. Just remember to choose hearts that are safe for the age of your child. I’m going to give each of the munchkins a Valentine’s Day box to put their hearts (aka treasures) in.

The Valentine’s Day Sensory Bin will be perfect for playing and learning. The Little Tikes Garden Table Play Set is the perfect year round sensory table.

Here are the skills my toddler and preschooler will be working on as we play:

  • Colors
  • Shapes
  • Texture
  • Counting
  • Patterns
  • Addition
  • Size
  • Fine Motor Skills
  • Sorting
  • More/Less
Practicing fine motor skills in sensory play to find the hearts

The munchkins love exploring in the flower petals and finding the hearts. The Valentine’s Day boxes are a huge hit to put their treasures in. I love watching them play, learn, and explore in their new sensory bin. They have been playing in it all day.
