Alphabet sensory bin ideas for kids that love letters! If your child is obsessed with letters, and/or is hyperlexic, then they'll love these ABC sensory activities!

If you have a hyperlexic child, then you know what it's like to raise an alphabet-loving, ABC-obsessed child. They live and breathe the letters of the alphabet and, meanwhile, it looks like a alphabet style glitter bomb exploded in your house. There's likely alphabet toys everywhere.

I'm right, aren't I?

That's because I get it. I know what it's like to raise a hyperlexic child.

At the height of J's alphabet obsession/passion, we had more alphabet books and toys than I'd care to admit. We also spent a lot of time doing alphabet activities as a way to keep him busy and to encourage him to play with different things or, at least, try new things out, even if it was just for a little bit.

So if you need a little inspiration yourself, then you'll love these 26 alphabet sensory activities for kids with hyperlexia.
