Button Sensory Bin!

We have been doing a lot with buttons around our house and to finalize all that we have been doing is a Button Sensory Bin. This is great bin for scoping and pouring and learning shapes and colors. It is fun to look at all the different buttons and go through them all.

Button Sensory Bin

This is an easy 2 minute sensory bin to put together. It does not take much time to collect everything. This is great for those that need something to do while you are cleaning or doing other activities.

What you need: lots of buttons, alphabet buttons, cups, and bin.

Mary first looked through all the buttons in the bin. This is a read sensory experience with all the different textures and shapes of the buttons.

Mary first went through and found lots of the button letters in the bin. The button are the alphabet buttons. There are 75 of them that come in a bag. This is a great exercise for letter recognition as well.

Amelia joined Mary and they pulled some of the buttons out to look at them better. We explore the shapes of the buttons. The many different colors and shades of the colors. We looked at one color and then explored another color.

They made shakers out of the buttons. They put their hands over the top of the cup with it half full of buttons. They sang some shaker songs they learned at EI Speech Group. We moved the shakers high, low, side to side, fast and slow.

They poured the buttons into the bin from standing up. They loved the sound that the buttons made as they hit the other buttons in the bin.

Mary poured the buttons from cup to cup. This is a great skill to work before learning ti pour water.

This was an activity where I let them have the buttons and just stood back to see what they would do. They had a great time and loved it. A button bin is something we use often now in the house.

  1. This is brilliant – and I’m not just saying that because I have possibly the largest button collection in North America stashed in my sewing boxes! Pinning right now – thanks for sharing!

  2. My son made a shaker out of our corn sensory bin this week! He said he made it for me, though. That’s my sweet little guy! I really like all the colorful buttons. When I’ve done activities with buttons they have all been brown, black or clear (they came with the clothes).
