This Jell-O Sensory Bin was so much fun for the kids to play. The colors were fun and the Jell-O was very squishy to the touch.
What is a Jell-O Sensory Bin?
A Jell-O Sensory bin is a kids bin filled with Jell-O for children to play. The Jell-O can be one or more flavors. For our bin, I used a variety of colors to create a Rainbow bin. The kids can use it to mix, squish, scoop & pour, pretend cook, and even eat!
Is the Jell-O Edible?
Yes, it’s Jell-O – that’s the best part about some of these activities we made. The kids can safely consume them. These activities are great for children who love putting all kinds of objects in their mouths. Once done playing, you can throw it away or put in the fridge for another time but I probably would just throw it away and make a new one as needed.
Is the Jell-O bin messy?
The Jell-O bin can or cannot be messy depending on how the kids use it. Little hands will get messy if used instead of a spoon
How to Make a Jell-O Sensory Bin
What you need:
- Jell-O – different colors
What to do:
- Make Jell-O according to package directions.
- Once set, add to a tray
- The children can use their hands or a spoon to break and mix them up.
Our kids enjoyed the feel of the Jell-O, mixing, squishing, scooping, and dumping back into the bin.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness (Proverbs 31:27).
