🍁 Colored leaves and happy kiddos please!
This #PlayDay we have a fall leaf sensory bin that will not disappoint!
With this sensory bin we are hoping to engage the eyes, ears, hands, and noses!
What we used:
- 🍁 Fall leaves (you can use real or fake).
- 🥜 Acorns that had fallen on the ground.
- 👃 Cinnamon sticks.
- 🌲 Pinecones
🤚 Optional: kitchen tongs for our little ones that may not be ready to dive in with their hands.
😃 Play-tip: see which item makes the loudest sound when FALLing into the bin! Do all the cinnamon sticks smell the same? Is one stronger than the next? Can you feel how bumpy those pinecones are! Almost as bumpy as a pineapple! The fun is endless!
💡 Pro-tip: encourage your child to help gather fresh items from outside for this bin so that they are able to learn more about the growing process! Take some time to compare pictures of green leaves on trees to the way the trees are looking now. Look up a picture of an acorn when it first starts growing and compare it to what you found outside.⠀
🤔 Living in a more urban area with less access to fresh trees and leaves? Never fear, Target Dollar Spot and Amazon Prime never disappoint! ⠀
❓What’s your favorite part of this sensory bin? ⠀
