Farming Sensory Tray Fun

We have been learning all about Harvest and Farming here in my childminding service and the children have had lots of fun making scarecrows, playing with our miniature farm and printing with vegetables. One thing that they really enjoyed was a little sensory tray that I made up for them using some black eyed beans and a few of the animals, the tractor, the farmer and his wheelbarrow and a few scoops (and a watermelon slice added by my son!). The children had a great time running their fingers through the beans, scooping them into the mini wheelbarrow and pushing the little tractor through them… so much fun from┬ásuch a simple activity.


If you decide to make a similar sensory tray yourself please make sure that you supervise your wee one whilst they play…. the beans are a choking hazard.

Have fun :0)
