Fall Sensory Table


Fall Sensory Table / Fall Sensory Bin

Good bye Spring Sensory table hello fall!

To start Fall out on the right foot I needed to not only decorate my house but change up my daughter's sensory table. To start our fall sensory bin we started by taking a nature walk!

Nature walk to find fall sensory items
On our nature walk we collected as many acorns as we could find, we took a few walks!! Tip: if you are bringing them inside make sure they are not cracked as they could have some sort of little critters living inside of them!
  
I wanted to fill our fall sensory table with corn and acorns. You can fill yours with all sorts of things like leaves, pine cones, sticks, etc. I wanted mine to be somewhat easy to clean up so my daughter could do it on her own without me having to bring out the vacuum every time she played in the sensory bin, which is usually daily.   Also when children pick up the little corn pieces they are using pincer grasps so some good fine motor going on too!

To make sure you have no little critters living inside your acorns follow these simple steps! 

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

1. Check for any cracks or holes in the acorns and throw them outside for animals to enjoy!

2. Wash the acorns in water and pat them dry

3. Place acorns on a cookie tray and put them in your oven that is heated to 350 degrees

4. Bake the acorns for 15 minutes

Once you have done this you are now ready to complete your fall sensory bin!
