My little loves sensory play. We have lots of sensory bins at home for her to use. Also, I am always on the look out for more sensory play ideas for her. With pumpkins being all around, why not go for some pumpkin sensory play time! Also, if you homeschool, some of these ideas are great to incorporate into your lesson plans, especially if you are teaching pre-k or kindergarten!
