Exploring Science sensory bin with nature

I found silicone fall leaves and pumpkin cookware in Wal-Mart for $3.00 the other night and picked it up cause there was so much that came to my mind we could use it for.

Well the first thing we did with them was I made Fall colored ice for the kids to use on the sensory table cause they love ice play.

I added some nature things we picked up from our nature walk couple days ago to the bin and "J" went to town.

I gathered:
Corn starch
Baby Oil
Baking soda
Shaving cream

"J" had a blast mixing it all in and seeing what happens after an hour of exploring he took all the ingredients and said "mom, I am going to make fires." He is all into this imaginary play, loves the whole Fireman thing. That brought on another hour of play.

Didn't think that this nature sensory exploring would be so much fun, but "J" loved exploring to see what each ingredient did when mixing each one.

Vinegar and baking soda bubbling when mixing
Then baby oil made it just run right off the leaves
Mixing corn starch and oil it clumped up.
