HARVEST SENSORY BIN SUPPLIES:
I included one small pumpkin, all the acrylic pumpkins and leaves I had, a pumpkin silicone ice cube tray, fake silky leaves, different types of tongs and scoops, different size containers. Pretty simple really since it was supposed to be a simple harvest sensory bin, right? The filler is mixed grains and alphabet pastas. I did not have enough of one type to fill my red bin enough to dump and fill, so I mixed a few together. It gives a very earthy feel to the harvest theme! I like to use what I have on hand to keep it all affordable!
