I 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.
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 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?
