Easy Bead Sensory Activity for Toddlers

Are you looking for an easy sensory activity for toddlers that the kids can have a great time with? Well this little toddler sensory craft is is so fun for worth the little effort is takes to set up. It was actually an unplanned activity.

It was hair day at my house, which at my daughter’s request involves beads right now, and she preceded to beg me to play with the beads. Well I got the bin out and she has found all types of creative ways to play in here bin. It’s super cute.

This is a low prep activity that involves dumping things in the bin 🙂 The great thing is the craft is an all day, on again, off again, activity. She started in the morning, and came back after lunch to play again. THAT is a super win.

You can do this craft activity with materials that you may already have in the house already (cereal, and play-doh or paper), along with the free cutout shown below. A little cutting and then the kids are set to go.
