This week I am doing something a bit different. I make quite a bit of sensory bins for my toddler and preschooler. I wanted to share with you how I organize and store all my sensory bin supplies.

I have all my current sensory themes in large Ziploc bags and labeled with the them name in Sharpie.  For any filler in our sensory bins (rocks, beans, shredded paper, etc) I place each of the filler materials in it’s own Ziploc bag as well.

All of these items are then kept in a storage bin with a lid and labeled.

Here are a few of the items we use in our sensory bins: bowls, tongs, measuring spoons, spoons, bowls with lids, funnels, etc.  I keep these items in the storage bins as well with the other sensory bin materials.

Lastly to keep it all out of reach from my children when not in use I keep it all up high so that it stays organized until I put the next sensory bin together!

I try to put together a sensory bin once every few months here are some of the sensory activities or sensory bins I have made for my kids:





Dried Beans

Rice Bin

Mud & Water

Egg Shells

Expecting A Baby 

Shaving Cream




Color Red


How do you store your sensory bin materials?

  1. Debbie @ says:

    Thanks so much for hosting!

  2. Great idea for storage. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Great idea! We haven’t tried the sensory bins yet but my son is at the perfect age for it.

  4. NYCSingleMom says:

    Thanks for your great ideas but I dont have sensory bins. In fact this is the first I have heard the phrase.

  5. Oh wow, you’re organized! To be honest, I only made one sensory bin and it was with beans. I guess the mess made me “forget” to make more LOL. Looks like fun, though!

  6. Thank you for reminding me to make a sensory bin. I used to make them a lot for my classroom but have never thought much about them for my kiddos.

  7. That is a fantastic organization system!! Much better than mine scattered all over the house! I need to compile them together.

  8. Wow you are definitely an expert at organizing! I’m sure it makes the entire process much easier.

  9. Great job on the organizing!

  10. I can’t get over how well organized you are. You have some great ideas!

  11. Ziplocs! Why didn’t I think of that?!? I always have to search high and low for stuff.

  12. Two things I love, organization and sensory bins!! 🙂

  13. great idea for storage the organization looks great!

  14. Great idea and organization.

  15. How did I not think of this!? Thank you for sharing! I get so overwhelmed when I start collecting things to make sensory bins, bottles, etc. and then I usually end up throwing things away because I can’t organize it all! Thank you!

  16. I found this post at Six Sister’s Stuff link up, and I’m so glad I did!! I’ve jeust learned that both my children have Sensory Processing Disorder, and this will be a great help!! I’m going to use some of the “bag” ideas you have too!! With the multitude of items we can use for sensory play, this organization idea will come in handy!!

    Thanks for letting us link up!!! I’m your newest Bloglovin follower!!

  17. What a great idea! So much easier and way more organized than what I’ve been doing. 🙂

  18. When my kids were younger I did something similar to this but stored my bags in a filing cabinet. Great idea!

  19. I struggle with how to store my sensory bin materials – thanks for some great tips! And for linking up at After School 🙂

  20. This is such a helpful post! I’ve just recently started doing sensory bins with my toddler and I could really use some organization where that is concerned 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  21. Thank you for sharing this! I really need to do something about organizing my own sensory bins… 🙂

    Thank you for the opportunity to share my post with your readers as well!

    I found your post through the After School Link-up @ The Measured Mom.

  22. What a great organization system you have!! I’m impressed. Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!

  23. This is a great idea! I was just thinking last week that I wanted to put together several, but wasn’t sure how to go about storing them. Thanks for sharing!
