Looking for space sensory bin ideas? Try these fun outer space sensory bin activities with your toddlers and preschoolers!

Space is a common fascination for hyperlexic kids, even as a toddler or preschooler. They'll learn facts about all the planets, read all the books they can about the solar system, and rattle off all the names of the moons of the different planets (among many other things). My hyperlexic son, for instance, has gone through periods of intense interest in outer space, off and on since he was about two.

So if your kid loves all things outer space related, then they'll love these space sensory bins. They're a great way to use your child's interest to introduce them to new textures and experiences.
