What do you put in a pasta sensory bin?
Items we included in our pasta touch & sound sensory bin:
- Macaroni (or other small dry pasta)
- Bottles with lids (several sizes would be great!)
- Measuring cups and scoops
- A bin of some sort! A plastic tub, or a confection pan works great.
But you could include any others scoops, spoons, a tray, measuring devices, bowls, or bottles. And plane any other pantry item, it doesn’t have to be limited to dry pasta!
You could moreover add other sensory bin filler elements like pom poms, pipe cleaners, or other craft items you may have.
You could take it a step remoter and dye pasta if you’d like (you can use the same method that we use to dye our rainbow rice, you just need supplies coloring and vinegar). We like simple here, so we kept the pasta al natural.
Pro sensory bin tip you must know!
Set your sensory bin on a blanket, or plane largest would be a plastic shower curtain, to help contain the mess.
The wrap doesn’t only makes it easier for wipe up. But it moreover sets boundaries with the sensory bin for the kids to alimony the pasta in an zone during play. (And not all over the unshortened house).

Of course, my boys immediately uncork filling up the bottles with the pasta. Pouring them into each other and out again.
And then, repeat. Over and over.
This is sneaking in some fine motor skills and a little hair-trigger thinking as they’re exploring.
Use the Pasta to Explore the Sense of Sound!
What I didn’t expect was the maracas that my boys made!
Once the bottles were filled and lids tightly secured, the boys shook them and made noises!
The pasta sensory bin play time took a new turn!
Henry plane did a little comparison to see how the pasta sounded variegated in each of the bottles.
I asked them, “Is this snifter quieter or louder when its shaken?”
And then, “Does the pasta sound higher or lower?”
As a result we turned this sensory worriedness into something other than for just the sense of touch, but for hearing too!
You can do this with any type of small container as long as you have a lit to tropical it with. Old spice jars or Tupperware containers work great! Try getting variegated sizes, or variegated materials (plastic versus glass).
Cleaning up the pasta turned into Sensory Play too!
When it was time to wipe up the sensory bin, my boys diligently scooped all the pasta noodles when into the large snifter then for storage.
During that, Dad stopped by and saw it was taking quite awhile and found a largest solution.
A piece of paper as a funnel to pour the pasta through. It works slick and the boys just thought it was unconfined that a piece of paper could be used for something other than writing on!
We have washed-up a tuft increasingly simple sensory activities like this, including corn meal, cloud dough, shaving cream, and bubbles!
Usually our sensory activities are well-nigh the sense of touch. I’m excited to share a post with you well-nigh the other 4 senses!
