I switched out all of our Halloween goodies for all things FALL today and I wanted to share our new fall sensory bin. After going to the pumpkin patch and seeing how obsessed my students were with the giant corn pit, I knew I had to find some of my own to add into this month’s bin.
Our bin is available daily for students to earn during breaks, and I also like to incorporate it during learning times as well.
Here is a sorting activity I do with the Fall Shapes I got from Oriental Trading.
Please note: While I did receive these item at no cost, all opinions in this post are 100% my own.
I also like to put the matching pieces to tasks (flipbooks/file folders) in the bin to make activities fun. Students have to dig up all the matching pieces to the tasks to finish. They love it! See some examples below.

Process art Christmas trees 🎄 . . Cut triangles out of cardstock, fold in half, let the kids go nuts with paint drops, fold smash, open and add all the glitter and sequins possible. My kiddos loved it and I love how they turned out! #christmascrafts ... See MoreSee Less
Love how our class Christmas tree turned out! 🎄Each student decorated a mini tree (construction paper cut into a triangle) and then we joined all the triangles together to make our tree. Perfect for the standard of making a bigger shape out of smaller shapes (on my students level). #christmascrafts ... See MoreSee Less
