Directions for beach sensory bin:
Before you get started, get out all the supplies you will need. The bin pictured used 25 pounds of play sand and a 50-pound bag was purchased in the Lowe’s garden section. You can also add different beach accessories such as various toys, shovels, seashells, etc.
Once you have everything together, pour enough sand to fill up half the bin as shown below.
Fill a pitcher with water and if preferred, add a few drops of food coloring to resemble bright blue beach water. Stir to blend the color and then pour into the empty side of the bin.
Add in your beach toys, shovels, and shells and start playing! Kids can enjoy digging in the sand for toys and shells, scooping up the sand, and splashing in the water with their hands.
