To build on the topic of follow up activities after a farm visit, how can I not throw in a sensory bin! This isn’t a new bin that I assembled but decided to repost it over here for its relevance. This bin was put together many months back when C was not well.
I put together a farm, inspired by her favorite book then, used some oats as the base (the same ones from the apple tree farm), borrowed some hay from Mocha and threw in the farm animals which were from Fisher Price’s Little People series. I also dripped a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil to help C with managing the fever and blocked nose.
She has since been more acquainted with the farm animals, especially the cow and rabbit.
Since the bin was set up in the living room, I laid a towel to help with the cleaning up. After C was done with the bin, we packed the animals and I wrapped up the towel with the spilled oats and grass before settling her for a nap. All I had to clean later was the towel. Easy! Now I need to find a larger towel for our sensory plays.
