Although I'm a bit behind blogging wise, our family has been having a great time with the 30 Days to Hands on Play Challenge. Day 9 was Sensory Tub Play which was convenient for me because that was my plan for the day anyway (they say great minds think alike!)
Our sensory tub included feed corn, acorns (we gathered on a hike), fake fall leaves, and spiky balls (sweetgum seed pods). After throwing the "ingredients" into our sensory bowl, I provided the kids with a variety of tools and containers for play.
Michael offers me a taste.
Michael learns it's more difficult to pour corn using a big bowl then a small scoop.
Then he discovered this scoop fits into the container...
and this scoop made a great drum stick for the table.
Ariel arranged everything in the bowl so perfectly, then declared, "I'm making gumbo...it's a type of soup."
