Sensory Bin of the Month: Leaves

On a beautifully and unexpectedly sunny afternoon this past week, we went on a leaf walk with a couple of friends. All of the kids (okay, not Nancy; she wanted to just hang out in the Ergo) were super enthusiastic about picking up leaves and we ended up with a huge bin of them. What to do with them? I pressed a whole bunch of the prettiest for Thanksgiving Art Play Date later in the month. The less pretty ones I threw in the compost (we’re talking about a ton of leaves). And the rest I put in our sensory bin.

I added in our Playmobil farm animals and tractors as well as some pine cones and some fake sunflowers from Dollar Tree. Nancy has loved hiding the animals under the leaves and having them find each other. Clara is not into the leaves now that they are sitting in the house, but she has rediscovered the farm animals and they all went on parade yesterday all around the living room.
