November Sensory Tub - Harvest

What's inside:

::Straw - Last spring I purchased these little bales from Micheal's Crafts for $2.99 each.
::Stuffed scarecrow
::Plastic gourds
::Fall colored puffs
::Beeswax pumpkin scented tea lights - they make the tub smell wonderful!
::Orange leaves
::Wooden bowl
::Wooden beads
::Fall themed buttons

We're still playing with our Halloween tub quite a bit, so this one will have to wait to come out for another few days. I'll be posting about November playdough soon.

~Thank you for your comments!~

I really look forward to your sensory tub posts! Seriously, I do! They're always so creative and appealing too. I just put together a fall sensory tub this past week, which was inspired by the one you did with leaves. I'll post it soon and link back to you. : ) I had also put a pumpkin-orange scented candle in it, and it DOES smell wonderful! I love your November one--love the hay idea!

I LOVE this idea. I am working on compiling one for November as well. How big is your actual "tub" and how do your store the tub items when not in use? I need an organization strategy before I start if I have any hope of reusing the tub items :)

Thanks for sharing your ideas!!!

I bet the beeswax candles are divine! We went to a pumpkin patch with a large straw area for the kids to play. Sophie had an excellent time, but I was kind of glad to leave the hay at the farm because it made me sneeze!

I love your addition of pumpkin candles in your sensory tub! I was thinking about throwing some spices or something scented in this time around.

I had also been contemplating using hay this month (either hay or dried corn-not popcorn). Is it poke-y/sharp? Does it shred easily? I'm wondering how my guy would like that...and how I would like cleaning it up!

Thank you SO MUCH for your comments!

@Ma Ledford: I'll be sharing a post soon answering all of the sensory tub questions I've received. :)

@Cara: No, it doesn't feel sharp or pokey (I worried about that too) and it does separate easily. It's actually really nice and soft. But, it is VERY messy/dusty. :S It's now become and outdoor tub.
