Pumpkin Sensory Bin & Tot Trays

For Ladybug’s Tot School, this week, we have a pumpkin theme!  On Sunday I will share in our weekly Tot School post photos of her interacting with all of this.  This set up was created for Ladybug who is currently 3 1/2, many activities could be enjoyed by younger or older tots.  See my post about following the lead of the child here.

I set up her Tot Trays with a pumpkin theme, with her sensory play area up on top.

Pumpkin Tot School

On her trays are many printable activities that require scissors and/or glue {most are from my Pumpkin Packs}.  Also there is a pumpkin eraser roll and transfer {she rolls the dice and transfers that many to the mini ice cube tray with the tongs}, and a color cubes pumpkin activity I made for her {I added the printable to the Pumpkin Printable Pack}.  Some orange play dough and pumpkin cookie cutters finishes up her trays.Pumpkin Tot School-3453
