I’m completely recovered from my bariatric surgery now and am feeling great. But I’m so excited that I still have a couple more Fall Fun Guest Posts to share with you. Here is a simple, but so fun, autumn sensory activity from Adele of Playful Learners…
A Simple Autumn Sensory Activity for Kids of All Ages!
Last Autumn we were exploring a range of sensory activities. I had just started childminding a little girl who didn’t like to get her hands dirty but at the same time she loved to explore. A sensory activity such as using shredded wheat, sensory gloves and
flour play are perfect for a child such as this.
Little man having just turn two was starting to notice the changes in the outdoor environment. On the way to pick his sister up from school he would stop to investigate large piles of leaves and collect acorns and conkers. With this in mind we saved his collection and took them home to explore further.
Make Cloud Dough for a Simple Sensory Activity
The children helped me put together a basic cloud dough recipe and I then added some nutmeg and cinnamon to take the sensory activity even farther. Its smelt lovely!!
The children enjoyed pressing the dough into the pine cones we had picked up and then shaking it to watch it fall back out. Little man rolled the conkers through the dough leaving prints then covered them up and dug them up again.
