Easy Fall Sensory Play
Hey y’all! I want to share this easy fall sensory bin that I quickly put together for the girls in less than five minutes, with things that we already had on hand. I love Easy Sensory Bin Recipes by Theme and this fits right in with it. It covered more than just one child but fun for both the girls
Like I said this bin uses things that I already had on hand. I don’t think teaching my children should cost me an arm and leg, plus I don’t have an arm or leg to give for it at this moment. So I reuse a lot of our resources and try to make sure that I get all that I can get from it. We tend to use a lot of things that are around us to learn and use every opportunity to learn something new. (Nothing is the same as it was five minutes ago, so pull your lessons.)
What’s all included in this bin
Black beans (Same beans used for this -Click here)
Numbered foam leaves (Made for this- Click here)
Glass gems (Used for too many projects to link)
Pumpkins (No link cause I have not posted about them yet)
I took all of the materials and just literally dumped them in a bin and handed the bin over. Fro Baby did just what I thought that she would be doing, practicing her number words and Baby G did just what I thought she would do, play and copy her big sister.
They did some pumpkin stacking, dry pouring, bean and glass bead counting and sorting. Yes! Baby G is now into sorting. She doesn’t sort color but she is fascinated with size. We have been playing with a little sorting lately and I am just having fun watching her grow.
Sensory bins are great busy time play for kids. I am normally monitoring my kids when we do sensory play, there are just too many choking hazards with sensory play for me. Now I don’t just sit there with my eyes on my kids the whole time like some kind of stalker. I let them enjoy independent play while I might be cooking, prepping for cooking, making lunch, reading a book, reading a book about cooking… You get the idea, I’m always close by.
Now go and make your fall sensory bin and let your child enjoy.
This is a requested post as well as this here (How to Dye Pasta). We do plenty of activities and I love to come up new ones all the time. If there is anything that you would like to see let us know in the comments and I will work it out.
