Fruit Sensory Bin
Any fruit could go in a fruit sensory bin - but I included an apple, pear, banana, cantaloupe (I found a small one that T would be able to pick up on his own), a pineapple, a lemon and a lime.
Fruit and Veggie Prints
Essentially - I cut some assorted fruits and veggies in half to create "stamps." We used a carrot, potato, pear, apple, lemon and peach. In retrospect, corn on the cob would have made a fun print, as would starfruit. Really, the possibilities are endless. I mainly chose pieces that were already damaged in our sensory bin or that were on their way out anyway (I tend to over buy potatoes...).
For this activity, I set up our pop up tunnel and placed a bowl of plastic fruit and vegetables on one side and an empty bowl on the other. My toddler worked his way back and forth, moving fruit from one bowl to the other. As he emerged with a new piece of fruit, I named it and identified it's color. He is becoming very verbal, so this was a great way for him to practice some new vocabulary.
