Simple Apple Washing Sensory Bin
Last time we tried this activity was a couple years ago and it was with our mini pumpkins.
This simple apple bin is so much fun and it is pretty much the same activity we tried with our pumpkins but instead this time around we used – apples.
If you are looking for a fun activity to try out this September at home or in a school setting, this one is so much fun!
This activity took only a few minutes to set up – literally.
I’ll share below how they enjoyed this simple kids activity and how easy it was to put together as well as some other fun ideas you can try too!

Sensory Activities for Toddlers and Preschool
So, how exactly is this beneficial for my toddler and/or preschooler?
They learn some of the basic skills of early learning while receiving benefits and while playing at the same exact time.
So neat, right?
Well, while they are washing the apples, they can talk about the colors they see:
This is a great learning through play activity.
Then, they are also receiving the benefits of:
Hand and eye coordination
Fine motor skills
And, they are doing this and gaining these skills all while playing!
They are having fun, probably laughing and having a great time!
You also get shiny clean apples after this, win – win! 🙂
Hint: While they were washing the apples we played a game of singing a song (washing apples while singing) and saying freeze (they would stop what they are doing) and then repeating this as they washed the apples and they loved this game.
It was a great way to learn through play.
