Fall is the perfect time of year for changing what's in your sensory bin and exploring new things. Leaves, pinecones, and small pumpkins are the perfect additions for this season. I headed to my local craft store and found some small pumpkins and fake leaves to add to our bin. Now that the colors are changing outside, real leaves will work perfectly, too! (Of course, they won't last as long.)
I reused the same plastic tub that I purchased at Target for our other sensory bins. A clear plastic storage container would work great as well! I also reused some of the dyed pasta and glass gems I had for other sensory bins.
What did I add?
Silk Leaves from the craft store
Miniature pumpkins from the craft store
Other great fillers for this activity in addition to or in place of the dried pasta and glass gems would be dried corn or dried black beans. What fall items would you include?
