Looking for Christmas sensory activities for toddlers or preschoolers? Then you'll love this simple Christmas sensory bin!

One of the easiest ways to get toddlers and preschoolers excited about Christmas is to create Christmas in a box.

That is, make a Christmas sensory bin.

This inexpensive sensory bin idea is quick and easy to set up, but incredibly engaging. It offers lots of tactile and auditory sensory input and can even be used to work on fine motor skills (just add some scoops, tongs, or spoons).

Easy Sensory Bin Idea for Christmas

As is the case with most of the sensory bins that I put together for my kids, this Christmas sensory bin is what I like to call a dump and play sensory bin. Simply grab the materials, dump them into a container, and play. So easy, right?

This sensory bin offers a variety of textures: soft, gritty, smooth, metal, and foam.

Using jingle bells offers an auditory component to this sensory activity as well.

You'll also be able to find all the materials needed for this sensory bin at the dollar store, making it an inexpensive Christmas sensory box. You can also reuse the materials for other Christmas activities as well.
