Fall Sensory Tub

While walking down my street one night I noticed that many of my neighbors had yards full of acorns. My boys think acorns are very fun to play with so I had them gather up a gallon size bag full and we headed home. I thought about painting them, or painting with them, or planting them, but then I had the idea to make a sensory tub using acorns as the base.
 Here is the finished product. I added in: strips of fall fabric, plastic leaf beads, synthetic leaves, foam pumpkins and gourds, foam leaves and a dash of fall Febreeze spray.
The boys have loved it and creating it was very easy. I got most of the "extras" at Dollar Tree. You can borrow my neighborhood if you need some acorns. We have tons!!
