A Bunny & A Duck

Quack..quack.. “Good morning Bunny! Let’s play!”

Hop..hop.. “Morning Duck! Let me finish my breakfast (carrots) first, then I’ll play with you”

Quack..quack.. “Okay!”


Soo this is my first ever sensory bin that I made for my son. I made this in December 2014, exactly one year ago. Very simple huh? I used mung beans as base (grass), then I put some beads as fallen leaves, cotton balls as rocks, and origami paper as pond. I made carrots and water lily pads from playdough and the tree from lego duplo. The bunny is a wooden puzzle, and the duck is a rubber duck. It IS a very simple sensory bin. However, my son is very happy playing with it for…15 minutes. Oh well, it’s good enough because he easily get bored. He always stop playing after 5 minutes then move to another play. That’s a toddler, with very short attention span. Nonetheless, I was very happy and decided to make him another sensory bins next time.

  1. I don’t have enough confidence to build any s-bin for my DD, but your posting makes it looks easier. I always thought that i need to have special educative toys (which is hard to find in my place), but this post teach me that s-bins can be made from scratch.


    1. Just be confident! Anyone can do it, really! I often makes very simple sensory bins like this one, even more simple than this. It’s just that I don’t post them because they’re too simple too “brag about”, haha. As long as the child happy. They don’t really care how neat you make the s-bins, in the end they will have fun with it (read: “destroy” everything) Just do it, don’t think too much about it, children often happy because of simple things 😉
