Playing with Dried Orange Slices

While making some pretty Dried Orange Slice Ornaments, there was a batch that was left in the oven a bit too long, however this turned out to be a good thing
because L loved playing with them! It's a great sensory activity. They smell nice, they have a cool texture, they make a neat sound when dropped on the table or floor, they can be crumbled, you can poke things through them, tear them....etc.

I put a hole in the center of a few of the slices, gave him some pipe cleaners, string, and a few hollow noodles and just let him take it from there.

He then made a face and told me it was a cowboy...Its crazy the way kids think. I love it!
