Farm Activities For Preschoolers

This week's theme is all about preschool farm activities! We are lucky to have had the opportunity to visit several different farms in the area including a sunflower farm and a dairy farm.

Me Getting a Grip

In the past few posts, on this early childhood blog, I have found myself writing about my challenges, and difficulties this fall in my small group of 2 1/2 year old children.

We have come a long way, and so I thought it would be fun to show some of…

Hot glue is a must, and so it makes this a fun craft. We did as a part of our Harvest party.

Fall Harvest Sensory Bin - Plain Vanilla Mom

I have a confession to make. I love sensory bins. Mr. C however, can often take them or leave them. Sometimes what I think is sure to be a great hit, he will look at briefly, play with for 5 seconds and then move on. This happens with sensory bins more than I would like …

Harvest Sensory Play: Planting Crops in Play Dough

We're celebrating Harvest this week with some seasonal sensory play. We've had great fun with this farm play dough, just perfect for sowing & harvesting crops! This is a great activity if you have a variety of coloured play dough that's become a little mixed! We blended our various play dough together until our colours became a nice muddy brown colour! Of course, you could just use brown play dough. First, we explored our newly made farm play dough with a tractor, which was a great way to…
