Leaf Sensory Table

During the winter I bring in our water table and turn it into a sensory table. Last year I kept a mixture of rice and beans in it during the cold months. This year I am trying to spice it up. After taking a walk earlier this week where there are leaves every where I thought...Heck, why not bring the leaves inside. It was a hit!

Shane (4 years old) and our Cousin Arli (1 yr) checking out the leaves.


 Shane enjoyed having containers to put the leaves in. He also spent some time sorting by color and size.
Adalyn (11 months) watching the other two kiddos playing.

Earlier this month I had pumpkin seeds in the table, which was a huge hit during our Halloween party. I did have to keep the pumpkin seeds away from Little Sister though...to much of a choking hazard. She took a few bites out of the leaves, but I was able to keep an eye on her while she played with them.

Do you have any fun items to put into a sensory table??
