Even though today Seattle had the tenth or eleventh (I lost count) day of 80 degrees plus weather, I still smell fall in the air. I grew up in New England and I just love the warmness and fuzziness of fall.
September Sensory Tub
I have wonderful memories of running through apple orchards with my cross country team, wearing wool sweaters that itched my chin and, ah, the smell. So, yes, fall is by far my favorite season – apple picking, apple cider, crisp air, turning leaves…As you can imagine, I was excited to create a fall sensory tub.
This tub includes (lots of “fake” stuff because I’d like to store it away – we’ll add the real deal soon enough):
September Sensory Tub Materials
- Real and fake acorns
- Real and fake pinecones
- Cinnamon Sticks
- Fake leaves of all sort of colors
- Broken bits of raw spaghetti to simulate hay on a farm
- Fake gourds
- Magnet letters that read “A-P-P-L-E”
- Farm figurines
- A scoop
- A pair of tongs
I found a lot of these items on Amazon but also at a local Dollar Tree store.
Books around the fall theme include:
– Apple Farmer Annie by Monica Wellington
– Why Do Leaves Change Color by Betsy Maestro
– Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert
