Anyone else have SO MANY plastic Easter eggs at their house? We have so many and I always seem to grab more on clearance each year. Use those eggs and some plastic (or paper) Easter grass to make a simple sensory bin. This bin focuses on matching upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet. It was a perfect review for my little one who has been working her way through the letters this year. Her older sister could even get in on the action and play with it even though it was too easy for her. Check out the steps to make your own alphabet match sensory bin.

Setting Up Your Alphabet Match Sensory Bin

To set up your sensory bin, spread the plastic (or paper) Easter grass at the bottom of your bin. Depending on the size of your bin, you might need a few packages but you can stretch and spread it out to make the grass as thick as you need it to be. I used 3 packages to fill the bottom of our 41 qt box.

Next, use the sharpie to write an upper and lowercase letter on each egg. If you are using hinged eggs, pull or cut them apart. Put the pieces in the grass away from one another.

Playing with your Alphabet Match Sensory Bin

To play with this simple sensory bin, have your child (or students) dig through the grass and find matches of the eggs. A match will have the upper and lowercase version of each letter of the alphabet. Snap these together and keep searching for other matches until all of the letters of the alphabet have been found.

If you want to make this a little more challenging for older students, do not have the tops and bottoms of the eggs match in color. My little one was able to narrow down choices for each letter by looking for the same color egg that she held in her hand. Then she just had to check the letters for a match. If you want it to be tricky, make it so that a match has a different color top and bottom so that your children are strictly searching for letters, not color matches.
