Fall exploration and discovery: sensory fun with corn cobs and sunflowers:
We’ve been having some sensory fun with corn cobs and sunflowers! Exploring corn kernels and sunflower seeds is always a fun activity at this time of year.
I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to my friends for dropping these delightful goodies off at my doorstep!
I used them to set up an inviting fall display for the hooligans to examine, explore and dissect, and they’ve been busy ever since, pulling kernels off of cobs and seeds out of the sunflowers.
I’m not going to do a whole lot of talking here, because the pictures will show you how much fun we’ve had. Touching, feeling, plucking and picking; these items have kept the children busy for days.
And we’re not the only ones enjoying this fall activity!
I have more plans in store for the corn kernels, but we have to finish stripping all of the cobs, so stay tuned to see what we’ll do next with our stash!
My favourite activity linked up at the last Outdoor Play Post was Sensory Play with Soapy Slime by Learning 4 Kids!
