I will admit, this was a challenging one for me. Thank goodness it fell on a week that was short 😂. This was the week leading into Thanksgiving, so we only had 2 days worth of activities. As always, let’s start with sensory bin!
For the outdoor letter match sensory bin, I used my Zoo-Phonics themed Inch worm alphabet match. You can get them here.
Every time I create this one, I change it up a bit. Typically I place mounds of plain oats in sections to replicate islands. However, I had just made this batch of blue rice and didn’t want them to get mixed up. (I try to reuse my fillers as much as possible). So I used these super pretty rocks from amazon as the island instead.
As I mentioned…it was a short week 😂. We are already at science!
Island-Loose parts, open ended play
If I haven’t said it in previous posts, I LOVE these!!! I have a whole set A-Z in my TpT shop and they are ABSOLUTELY something you need in your home/class. Kids will stay busy for hours!
- Open ended play pages
- Random assortment of loose parts:
- Balancing rocks
- Seashell “eggs” (from the Dollar Tree during Easter)
- Blue nautical buttons (Amazon)
- Plastic toy crabs
- Palm trees
Provide a basket of loose parts and have kids use the variety of pages to build and create.
This was so much cuter in person. Combine 2 cups of corn starch with 1/2 cup of baby oil. Add glitter if desired. Have kids use the fake snow to build igloos!
I was not very impressed with myself on this one, but the show must go on 😂.
