I am up WAY too early for a Sunday! Jada must have decided it was time to get an early start on the Halloween festivities. Right now she is sporting her skeleton P.J's and watching a show on PBS while giving the cat hugs and kisses. I love that kid!!! Anyway I thought I would show you what we are doing for November in regards to our theme.
This Months Sensory bin matches our Dino theme. Here is what is inside:
Various different kinds of rocks, plastic Dino's, plastic trees, cinnamon sticks (logs), and plastic eggs with Dino babies inside. I might add a container of water for the corner later, for the Dino's to swim or get a drink. I got the Idea for this sensory Bin from HERE.
I found this place mat at walmart for $2.00 I hope it will be a good conversation piece.
This months Play dough is to represent dirt. I got this idea after I googled play dough for dinosaurs. I can't find the link now but trust me it's out there. Anyway the site I found suggested to add peanut butter to the dough to make it look like dirt or use cocoa. I went with cocoa because I have some little ones in my care that haven't had peanut butter yet. It smells so delicious! this has proved problematic with Jada. Since it's homemade I try not to worry so much about it. The worst that can happen is she gets really thirsty from the salt.
