Looking for weather sensory bin ideas for toddlers and preschoolers? Well, these fun weather themed sensory bin activities are great for any preschool weather lesson plans and units.

My son has had a special interest in weather for quite some time, which might be surprising to some given that he also has extreme anxiety about weather. However, it doesn't stop him from wanting to learn about weather and different types of weather systems.

I mean we've signed out more weather themed books from the library than I care to admit. But learning about the weather has been a good way for him to use logic to cope with his anxiety. Sure he might be worried about hurricanes, but he also knows that the chance of one happening where we live is zero.

Anyway, these weather sensory bin activities are also of great help. They give kids the chance to discuss different types of weather, learn vocabulary, roleplay weather scenarios, and more. Plus, they're fun.
