Do you know any little ones who love construction vehicles? This construction sensory bin is perfect for little builders. It was simple to assemble and yet it provides a lot of entertainment and exploration for kids. Sensory bins do not have to be complicated or expensive. And, I really love the creative play aspect that they provide.
This construction sensory bin is also very portable. It’s also ideal for a wide age range. My youngest is 2 and my oldest is 4 – they both love their construction sensory bin.

As you can see, most of these materials can be picked up at the dollar store or at Walmart. Honestly, some of these materials could even be found around your home.
Construction Sensory Bin
On a nice day, we love to play with our sensory bins outside on a tablecloth in order to keep pickup easy. But, sensory bins are also great for rainy days and inside play.
Rocks were pushed, lifted, and sorted. I listened to the imaginative conversation that was happening. Pretend workers had voices and it was clear the construction vehicles had a very important job to do.
The pretend play is my favorite aspect of sensory bins!
Of course, there are many options to customize your construction sensory bin for your kids. Different materials could be used such as sand or even brown rice.
