This simple Autumn sensory play idea is just perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. It doesn’t require expensive resources to set the activity up – in fact, you can find all of the ‘ingredients’ you need by going on a walk with your children.
During the Autumn months, we always find an abundance of nature treasures when we go on weekend walks in the countryside. Usually, a pocket full of pinecones, leaves and sticks will find their way home with us. We use these resources in many Autumn themed activities, including this super simple ‘soup’.
