November Sensory Bin

november sensory bin filled with fall goodiesI absolutely love the months with holidays in them, so we can base our crafts and activities around a special theme.  November has me kind of stumped.  Hallowe’en is over, and Christmas is still off in the distance, so we don’t have any real celebration to focus on.

I decided to go with another fall themed Sensory Bin for November.  I chose some fall-ish items that we’d used in our September bin, like chestnuts, apples, mini-pumpkins etc., and placed them on a bed of rice and pasta.

A few tongs and trays for sorting and we were good to go.  It’s amazing how switching just a few things up, gives an activity new life.  

Tongs and scoops are the most popular tools in the bin, so I try to have a variety so everyone is happy.  The meat-ball maker (at least I think that’s what it is), is great for picking up chestnuts and other small round objects.  Large plastic tweezers are fun too.

I covered some toilet paper tubes in fall-coloured wall paper samples, for pouring and dropping things through, and provided some ice-cube trays for sorting.

As you can see, some of them get right into the whole sensory thing.  One with his body, and one tasting the rice and pasta.

I love sensory bins.  They’re so easy to pull together with things you have around the house.  If you’ve never made one, go for it!  Your kiddos will love it, and you’ll be amazed by how much fun and entertainment they provide!

What’s going into your sensory bin this month?
