Here is this weeks Fall Sensory Table for you with a fun Pumpkin Spice theme. I have been dying to make "clean mud" with the boys forever. So now was a great time to try it. It was a perfect hands on sensory play material for one of our 4 fall sensory tables.
Pumpkin Spice Clean Mud: a fall sensory table
What we used:
cinnamon, pumpkin spice, allspice, orange gel food coloring, toilet paper, borax, ivory soap, and water.
What we did:
We tore up a bunch (2 rolls) of toilet paper. I also had a small bag of white tissue paper the boys tore up last year and we added that. Then I added water to a measuring cup(think it was 4 cups). To the water I added the food coloring and spices. I also added about a 1/4 a cup borax. While I did this my husband grated the 1 bar of ivory soap into the toilet paper.
I poured the mixture into the bin with the grated soap and toilet paper. My husband and the older boys started to mix it up.
Once we got through
playing mixing up the pumpkin spice clean mud, we put the lid on it. We left it overnight.
The next afternoon I got it out for big brother to play in. Little brother was ill so he didn't get to play in this sensory table. He is doing much better now! And we look forward to him making up playtime in our next fall table.
I often say simple isn't boring. And simple sensory table is the way I went with this one. I added the clean mud to one side of our table and a few bowls and spoons to the other. I also gave him a bottle of cinnamon to sprinkle for extra fun. He didn't waste anytime getting his hands in the mud. He whipped up my mom and I some yummy pumpkin pies.
Do not forget to check back next week to see what fall sensory fun we get into. We hope you can enjoy this weeks Pumpkin Spice Clean Mud as much as we did.
Please do come and visit us again. We would love to have you back.
All kids are different and only you can decide how you let your kids play. And with what materials you let them play with. My children are supervised when playing. Please keep this in mind with any post you read of mine!
