Sight Word Pumpkin Patch Sensory Bin

Sometimes, I get so excited about activity ideas I have — and then it takes forever to get around to them. This Sight Word Pumpkin Patch Sensory Bin was one of those cases. I loved the idea, but it took me a full fall season to actually set this up, and then even longer to present it to E, even though it was about the simplest thing ever 😉 But regardless, E absolutely loved it, and it worked out just the way I’d planned 🙂

After pouring just a little bit of my white/orange rice and black beans mixture into the sensory bin, I randomly stuck some pre-primer sight word pumpkins into it. I simply placed the applesauce cup on top of the rice and beans off to the side.

E didn’t require any explanation and started pulling out one card at a time and reading her sight words.

Those she didn’t get right on her first try, she stuck back in and got them all on the second try.

Once she’d gone through all of the sight words, she decided to bury the cards completely in the sensory filler
