Fall Sensory Basket for Infants and Toddlers – Gourds

We go to a local farmer’s market each week for our fruits and vegetables.  This week, they had a huge bin full of different types of gourds right by the door.  L made a bee-line for the bin and enjoyed searching through it.  I decided to update her sensorial basket with some fall gourds.  I chose gourds of all different colors, textures, and sizes, and put them in the basket.  L loves taking them out one by one and running her hands over the ridges and bumps.  We provide the correct vocabulary for her — “green,” “yellow,” “orange,” “bumpy,” “rough,” “smooth,” “big,” “little.”  L brings this basket to the table several times a day to explore the gourds.
