Cutting Practice Trays
I found these free Fall Cutting Strips from Montessori Print Shop. Bean does really well using her scissors. She does better with paper than hair, though.
I found this recipe for pumpkin pie scented playdough and made some up for Bean. Note to fellow playdough makers - I tried making this recipe. I did not have enough salt so it did not turn out right. Next time I think I will try cutting this recipe in half to see how much that will make. But it did smell wonderful anyways.
Halloween Sensory Tub
I couldn't find all the fall items I had for last year's sensory tub so I had to get a few new things. Thank goodness for Target's $1 section. Yes, lookey there, I gave Target a compliment. Ha!
We used sticky skeletons and mice which we quickly learned weren't good cause the green peas stuck to them, ghost and bat erasers, mini pumpkins, snakes and spiders. Bean left one of the spiders on the counter and later that night when I went in for a snack, I had quite the fright!
Notice the bee that is hanging around up there? That's Bizzy. Bizzy the Bee. Bean was assigned to bring her home for the weekend and journal what the two of them did all weekend. They had a wonderful time together and Bizzy has been invited back any time she wants.
