Leaf Sensory Tub

3 Oct

This is our leaf sensory tub. The kids love it!

Here’s what it includes:

*acorns from around the neighborhood

*pine cones from our tree

*popcorn seeds

*fake leaves (you could have real ones)

Troy really loved this one. We talked about the shapes and how everything feels. He said it felt sharp and smooth.

I also shared with him how an acorn seed can turn into a tree! I think he was amazed and slightly confused.

We also had fun putting the seeds in a funnel into a vase. Workin’ on those fine motor skills!

Even Wes joined in on the fun and was very focused on putting those seeds in the vase.

This tub was fun (and messy) but I love having activities for my kids that are hands-on and entertaining!
