Growing up in New England, my affinity towards the fall season is a little extreme. I love the crisp air, the smells and the deep, beautiful colors. So, of course, I am excited for fall activities. The Farm Sensory Tub is simple and fun. Great sensory exploration and fine motor skill development as my son enjoys cracking the peanuts, too!
Here is what we included:
- Critter feed that includes bird seed, corn kernals and peanuts in their shells
- Farm figurines
- A silicone measuring cup
- Measuring cups from his kitchen
- A teaspoon
- A few matchbox cars including a tractor
- Letters F-A-R-M
The best part about this sensory box, at least for us, is that the critters come visit us a lot more often. The beautiful bluejays and even the squirrels scurry up for a taste of peanuts. A great learning experience for him, my son adores these visits and so do I.Â Â The other day I said to my husband, “huh, the bluejays seemed to have disappeared on us.” He reminded me that I had put away the sensory bin. Good point.
Thanks for reading!
