Sensory Kit/Fall Sensory Bin/Hibernation Animals/Forest Animals/Sensory Play
When the cooler days and nights of autumn start rolling in, so do new opportunities for sensory fun that celebrates the season’s changes! If you’re looking for a great way to connect with your little one (or a class of inquisitive kiddos) as the leaves start to turn, a Fall Sensory Kit can be the perfect answer.
Sensory play is an important part of healthy development. It provides a chance for children of all ages to explore and discover the world around them through engaging activities that stimulate the senses. When, planned correctly, sensory play activities give children the chance to experiment, be creative, and learn while having fun.
These kits are flexible enough so you can customize them according to whatever interests your little ones have. For example, your at-home Fall Sensory Bin can include things like fall-themed items such as acorns, leaves, and pinecones, paper shapes, woodland animal figures, as well as nature’s gems like seashells. You can also include items such as a magnifying glass and a rain stick for an extra sensory experience.
Your kit might also include “hibernation” animals such as hedgehogs and bears, and other “forest animals” like chipmunks and red foxes. This gives your little one the chance to explore different habitats and learn more about the changing world around them.
No matter how you decide to customize your Fall Sensory Kit, you can be sure that you’re providing your child with a creative and enriching experience full of exploration and discovery!
Happy fall and happy sensory play!
