How to Set Up Flower Pumpkin Sensory Soup
We did this activity on an unusually balmy October day, so I decided to let them cool off in the wading pool.
It was the best idea ever. They loved this full body pumpkin sensory soup!
Next, I added water. After that, I let my toddlers add the mini pumpkins and gourds into the wading pool.
Finally, I removed the stems from the sunflowers and other flowers that I had and let them toss them into the pool as well.
I handed them some spoons and bowls and a strainer and let them play!
Fall Sensory Fun
Flower Pumpkins sensory soup was a total hit with my 19 month old twins! The sensory soup they created was not only incredibly fun it was also amazingly beautiful to look at!
They loved this activity so much that I saved the flowers and gourds in order to set it up in our IKEA FLISAT Children’s Sensory Table
