Simple activities always seem to be the most engaging for my kids. 

I also learn a lot about my children's personalities while they play with simple ideas like this scarf sensory bin for kids. It includes a variety of textures and colors, making it a great way to get tactile and visual sensory input. Plus, it's a baby-friendly sensory bin, making it a great activity for kids of all ages.

This sensory bin requires zero prep. Simply grab the materials and add them to a large plastic bin. Here's what we used:

  • Scarves - I used my personal collection of infinity scarves, but you could add winter scarves for a variety of textures and patterns. Or substitute the scarves for some play silks if you'd prefer.
Scarves are fun for kids to play with for a variety of reasons, including the bright colors, fun patterns, different textures, and neat embellishments such as fringes. It's a lot of tactical and visual sensory input in one bin!

It was interesting to see how four year old K played with this sensory bin. He first carried the bin of scarves around, which turns out to be a great heavy work idea for kids.

He then decided to throw the scarves around from a variety of places, including standing on a chair. At one point, I was required to hold the bin on top of my head so that he could toss the scarves in. I obliged, of course.

K also loved laying in the bin of scarves. I admit it looked really comfortable! If I could fit, then I would certainly give it a try as well.

And then after laying it in it, it only makes sense to start sorting and throwing out all the scarves. He had so much fun and yet, it was such a simple idea.
