Because We Never Stop Evolving As Parents or As People

10 Fall Sensory Bins


Fall is just around the corner! Think about your favorite smells, sights and sounds about the fall. Do you yearn for the crunch of dried leaves under your feet? How about the smell of a cool, crisp morning? Do I even need to mention the scent of mulled apple cider?

10 Fall Sensory Bins | The Jenny Evolution

Sensory bins are the perfect way for little ones to explore the larger world, learning about textures, sounds, smells and sights all while practicing their fine motor skills as they manipulate objects. Sensory bins don’t have to be as formal as some of these. Making something as simple as a pile of leaves for your tots to explore can make a terrific version of a sensory bin.
