Today I’m sharing some sensory play for letter U.
Just find a bare spot in your flower bed or garden and let your child discover what’s underground.
My kids love to dig and explore outside. But I don’t have any pictures.
Because I missed my window! Right now my little boys are outside raking wet leaves. No, raking leaves isn’t one of their chores – they’re doing it so they have a pile to jump in. 😉
It’s mid-October here in the midwest. We’re having a rainy, chilly fall, and it’s looking like our next digging weather won’t be here until spring.
Since I don’t have any pictures of my kids in action, I thought I’d recommend some tools to help your children get the most out of their digging. Here’s a garden set which gets high reviews on Amazon. We have some similar digging tools, and the kids love them.
We have two small kids’ rakes that my preschoolers use quite a lot. I have my eye on this big tool set – especially that child-sized shovel!
This is actually a really cool bug catcher set. Each of my big kids received one from their aunt and uncle last Christmas. The pieces are pretty durable, and some of the lids are magnifiers. Perfect for discovering what lives underground!
If you’re looking for underground sensory play that you can do any time of year, check out this creative small world activity from Fantastic Fun and Learning. She has a great book list about underground animals too!
