Humpty Dumpty Preschool Sensory Activities

What You Need

  • 3 similar coloured plastic eggs
  • fillers ( uncooked rice, beans, salt)

How To Play Our Humpty Dumpty Preschool Sensory Activities

You have 2 options for how to do this preschool activity.

We loved this Humpty Dumpty Auditory Preschool Sensory Activities for our auditory sensory play! All we needed were a few things that we had around the house- an easy kid activity for sure


1) Fill each plastic egg with 1 tablespoon of each filler. Egg #1 will have 1 tablespoon of uncooked rice, egg #2 will have 1 tablespoon of beans and so on.

2) Place your eggs on a flat surface where your preschooler can see. We love using our coffee table in the living room as it is the perfect height for J.

3) Invite your preschooler over and say the nursery rhyme.

4) Tell them you will be playing a guessing game to find out what was inside Humpty. Let your preschooler know the 3 options: rice, salt and beans. Have her shake them to hear the differences.

5) Give your preschooler 1 egg and ask her to shake it. Ask her to guess what is inside. Do this for the other 2 eggs as well.


1) Place the items on a flat surface.

2) Have your preschooler fill the eggs, themselves.

3) follow OPTION 1.
