Berry Sensory Bin

Berry Sensory Bin Water beads Fruit

It’s Fruit Week at our FREE summer camp U Ready Kids Camp. If you haven’t downloaded the Free camp PDF head to my U READY KIDS CAMP post.

Each week has a themed sensory bin like this colorful berry sensory bin. This berry sensory bin can be made with any fruit colored sensory bin filler. We used berry-colored water beads but you could use colored sand, play dough, jello, dyed rice, pompoms and more. A heart shaped cake tin worked perfectly for a strawberry but you could use any round pan or plate. Our whole summer camp is meant to be flexible. Use what you have at home and use our examples for inspiration!
