Apple Picking Sensory Bin

 I hosted an Apple Printing Playdate for my Local Children's Art Group recently and inspired by the theme I went perusing blogs to find apple sensory bins. I stumbled upon one HERE, at Pink and Green Mama's blog. So, very much inspired by hers I made the one you see above.

I made the mini baskets using acorn caps, wire, and hot glue.
I also made the mini ladder with little sticks and hot glue. The trees I copied from Pink and Green Mama's idea and are toilet paper rolls and felt leaves. (brilliant!)

apples and cinnamon... perfect combination!

The kids loved it!

and L continues to play with it at home.
