Set up a simple and fun sensory bin with an apple pie theme for Fall.
Fall is here, which means the weather will get cooler, the aroma of pumpkin spice and cinnamon everywhere I go, beautiful bright orange, yellow colors, and APPLES! I love apples and October is National Apple Month!

Michaela and Madison recently learned about the letter A at pre-school and did some apple activities. So I thought it’d be a great time to do some fun activities and learn about apples too.
As I am writing this, my kiddos are back playing with their sensory bin again. They really really love it! This momma loves it too. They can play with it, be creative, and learn… for HOURS!!!
Another thing I love about this sensory bin. The oats and cinnamon are edible. So if they taste it and lick it, I’m not too worried. Madison tried some oats and wanted to eat an entire bowl of it. She’s always hated anything oats. So I thought I’d try and see if she would eat oatmeal.
She prepared and made her own oatmeal. She added as much or as little oats as she’d like. Kids love making their own food and love it even more if they think they have choices. *wink* Madison also added cinnamon, honey, and almond milk. We microwaved the oatmeal for 2 minutes and it was done.
The moment of truth……. SHE LOVED IT and had seconds.
Michaela and Madison really loved playing with the oats. They made each other “birthday cakes” and used the cinnamons as candles.
Shiloh was obsessed with the red measuring spoon and loved to throw oats in the air and made it “rain!”
This is why there’s a BIG blanket laid out… it could get messy.
Apple pie sensory bin is a definite win-win, especially when your little ones ended up trying new foods and liked it.
