We are lucky to live somewhere where pumpkins and gourds are in abundance and best of all, quite inexpensive! It’s fun to get several the first week in October. At Jo-Ann last month I saw a pumpkin bath scrubber on sale for 50 cents (and I think I saved more with a coupon). I had to get it and I knew what to do with it: wash pumpkins! What a good fall sensory activity!
Like I said in my pumpkin theme post presented this on the tot tray shelf simply with three small pumpkins and the scrubber. But, D did an awesome job setting this up for E on a much larger scale!
D used our trusty Rubbermaid bins, put a little water in each (and a tiny bit of soap in one). Then he went to work with our huge collection of pumpkins and gourds!
They generally need the dirt washed off them anyway, so this is a wonderfully practical fall sensory activity.
(After this, they went ahead and carved a pumpkin that wouldn’t have made it until Halloween anyway. Cool!)
This simple fall sensory activity idea is shared with 1+1+1=1’s Tot School Gathering Place, Motivational Monday, Tuesday Talk, The Homeschool Nook, Wonderful Wednesday Linky Party, Blogger Spotlight Link Party, Shine Blog Hop, TGI Saturdays, and Family Joy Blog Link Up Party!
