I put together a Harvest Themed sensory bin for Yummy and Dooter; it is probably one of the easiest/quickest sensory bins I've ever made. It took less than five minutes to stick everything in the bin and has been good for lots of entertaining play. I have two wooden crates full of weird things that make great sensory bins; having everything together like this makes it very easy to put a sensory bin together fairly quickly.
Here's what I included for this seasonal bin:
-crinkly brown paper strips that came in a gift box (I save potential sensory bin fillers like this in big ziploc bags for easy assembly)
-a handful of very thin curly wood strips (also got this as gift box filler)
-a tin bucket with a few handfuls of nuts in shells, leftover from last Christmas
-a small square bale (found at a thrift shop)
-a brown plastic grain elevator that is supposed to be a piggy bank
-a small straw basket with some dried corn husks and a dry cob of red corn (I made a similar harvest bin last autumn and included this corn cob, but it will definitely NOT make another year -Dooter spends long stretches of time quietly picking the niblets off one by one.)
-another dried cob of corn
-two little wooden shapes: a pumpkin and a sunflower
