Supplies for Fall Soup
- Sensory table or round serving tray
- Kid’s Kitchen Utensils ( I purchased mine from IKEA but you can find similar one here.)
- Artificial leaves
- Food coloring (orange or yellow)
- Kid’s Pots and Pans ( I purchased mine from IKEA but you can find similar one here.)
- Acrylic fall vase filler
- Fall scent essential oils (optional)
I put this activity together for my toddler using acrylic fall vase fillers and artificial fall leaves that I purchased a few years ago. Next time we’ll go on a nature hunt to find fall items around the neighborhood to use for this water play. To get started with this fall soup sensory activity, fill a round tray or sensory table with water then add a drop of food coloring and stir. Next, add the artificial leaves and acrylic vase fillers. That’s it! We stayed inside but I will make sure to take the fun to the backyard next time. My toddler dumped his pot filled with water on the carpet. It was a hot mess situation. I recommend placing a plastic tablecloth under the table if you are doing this activity in your home. He enjoyed scooping all the pumpkins and acorns using the ladle and tong. We also worked on counting and separating the acorns and pumpkins. There’s so much you can do with this simple fall soup sensory activity.
