The Little Rabbit Sensory Bin … or Tray

Initially I had grand plans for a super cute sensory bin to go along with the book The Little Rabbit by Judy Dunn. A few things had been put aside to put in the tub, but when I asked for Kaleb’s help the first day of our unit, he decided that less was more and had just as much fun playing with it.

Inside our sensory tub/tray:

Instead of using a tub for this, we used a shallow lid. Kaleb decided that instead of Easter grass he wanted to use green construction paper for the grass, so we put that on the tray.

In the story, the rabbit hutch has hay, so I cut the tan construction paper into thin strips and then Kaleb had fun snipping off small pieces to put inside the hutch {great fine motor work for him, since he typically doesn’t like using scissors}.

The Little Rabbit Sensory bin-4

We added the figures to our tray and this has been the ‘go to’ toy all week for not only Kaleb, but the other kids as well. Tiny little latches, hidden doors – so much fun.

The Little Rabbit Sensory bin-5

Less has definitely been more this week.

  1. So fun to look at this morning just as my kids are playing with the exact rabbit hutch and grey bunny. I showed the kids, who were quite excited to see someone else having as much fun as them..

  2. We have this same set and I can’t wait to do something similar when we row this title. I would have never thought of this. Thanks for sharing.
