Happy spring! I don’t know about you, but I am always SO ready for spring weather by the time April comes around! I love boots, scarves, and hot coffee as much as anyone else, but there’s something so inspiring about the fresh start that the spring season brings. One of my favorite parts of spring is the Easter holiday, so I hope that you can add this free Easter Sensory Bin Literacy Activity to your list of inspiration! Sensory Bins are a great hands-on activity for practicing early literacy skills like CVC words and ending sounds!
*Pair with our Easter Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
Easter Sensory Bin Literacy Activity
When searching for a filler for this month’s sensory bin it only seemed fitting that an Easter-themed bin deserved some Easter basket filling!
How fun and festive is this stuff?! It feels fabulous, adds some Easter spunk to the activity, and is super cheap. That’s a “win” all around in my book!
If you already use sensory bins in your classroom your new bin is already halfway set up! Simply toss last month’s filler into a gallon-sized baggie. But be sure to save it for another fun bin! Replace the old filler with the Easter basket filling.
If you’re new to the sensory bin scene, no worries! Grab whatever size bin or basket works for your space and you’ll be ready to go!
How to Play
This set of sensory bin printables has 2 very similar activities, making it perfect for adapting to your students’ needs without anyone feeling like they’re missing out.
In the first set, cut and place the Easter Egg pieces with CVC words and images in a sensory bin.
To play, students will choose egg pieces from the sensory bin to match with their correct image or word. Then, they’ll record their answers using the CVC Words recording sheet.

For the second set, students will choose egg pieces from the bin or basket to match their correct image or final sound. Then, they’ll record their answers using the Ending Sounds recording sheet.
If you’re in a pinch, you can even just add the egg pieces to a small basket for students to pick from. This way is still effective AND fun!
No matter which set you use, your kiddos are sure to have a blast with these sensory bins this Easter season!
