Sensory Fun ~ Fall Fabric Leaves, Popcorn and Split Peas

IMG_5477

I filled our sensory tub up with a half a bag of popcorn kernels that were in the cabinet for years.  (I bought a fresh bag and couldn’t just through these out.)  I also added a bag of split peas and a bunch of fall fabric leaves and flowers.  I found a bunch of them while I was going through our fall decorations.  I didn’t have a use for them anymore so I thought they would be great for a fall themed sensory tub.

Juliette was able to test it out while Emily was taking a nap.  She loved using the scoop I found at my Grandmother’s house while helping her clean out some cabinets.

Lovely! I need to bring our sensory bin back out for my little :)
Something I used to do that you might find useful: I put a large flat sheet or a big blanket under the sensory bin so that most of the mess was contained on that. I then just dumped it back into the bin when we were done!
