This preschool sensory bin was an instant hit with my almost-three-year-old.
In fact, it got us talking about all the different parts of the flower.
Here’s how my preschooler played with this Valentine sensory bin:
I poured water into our under the bed storage bin.
I handed my 2.5-year-old the vase of flowers that he was already interested in.
Handed my 2.5-year-old some safety scissors.
Of course, stay close as your child uses the scissors. Make sure they are child blades with rounded edges.

Talk about the investigation!
My preschooler wanted to know all about the different parts of the flower.
“Look, mom. A petal!”
“What’s this part called, mom?”

We kept this Valentine’s sensory activity outside.
Typically activities with water result in a change of clothes. I didn’t necessarily need my floors washed today.
