It’s no secret that I love a good sensory bin because they are such an easy way to let your child’s imagination run wild. I have a few up my sleeve for this year so don’t be surprised if you see a few happening here because like I said, they are just so easy to throw together and the perfect activity for toddlers to learn through play.
We love coffee in this house which y’all know…well, I love coffee. My husband doesn’t understand my undying love for it. My kids have grown to love Starbucks just as much as their mama so I had to throw together this super cute coffee sensory bin. I did coffee beans, which who knew they’d be so hard to track down, as the base of the sensory bin.
Added in some old creamer bottles that I washed out really well and of course, can’t forget the Starbucks hot cup!
The kids absolutely love doing sensory bins and this was a fun one because they recognized mama’s coffee instantly and of course wanted to know where their cake pops were. We got to talk about cause and effect from pouring the coffee beans in and out of the creamer bottle along with measuring using the spoons from their last sensory bin.
My favorite time with them is the time we take to talk and learn through play. My parenting style has certainly changed so much over the last few years and the Montessori approach has taught me so much about allowing them to learn on their own and to also use every moment as a teaching moment.
This is so unique, I love it! I’m sure it also smells amazing!
This is a really cute/fun idea! I bet it makes the kitchen smell great when they are playing with it. The addition of the empty creamer bottle and the cup were a great idea too.
What a fun idea! Definitely a lot of sensory things going on here, between the smell and the objects. I love that you made a coffee theme!
an amazing smelling sensory bin for sure 🙂
How adorable! I love this sensory bin idea. I bet it smelled amazing too.
I love coffee and the smell of coffee, not too sure how I would feel if I used my beans in a sensory bin lol. Maybe I can find coffee beans at the dollar store. This is such a cute idea though.
You can always use Cocoa Puffs
I’ve never done a sensory bin for my kids but want to try one soon. This one looks like so much fun and I bet it smelled amazing.
I love this idea! My concern is that my 2 year old will spill this all over the house! I think I will try thjs when the weather warms up so we can do this activity outside!!
It is very unique and fun idea. Wish to try it some day.
What a fun idea for a sensory bin. I love that this one includes the sense of smell. Brilliant!

I love how relaxing this looks for the kids.
This is such a fun and adorable idea! Great idea to also include sense of smell!
This is a great idea! I will definitely have to try it when my son is old enough!
Great creative idea to mix coffee, fun, children, and family. The children will have so much fun.
Sensory fun for future coffee drinkers! Great idea!
