Fall Pumpkin Sensory Bin

We made these fun pumpkins one day and have been playing with them a lot lately. 

We started by painting an egg carton orange.  (This was a group project between all of the kids...)
Big Sister then helped me paint 12 golf tees a nice shade of green.

Painting Egg Cartons
Once the paint dried, Little Guy got busy hammering the golf tees into the egg carton. 

He is a huge fan of hammering golf tees into egg cartons.  We first did it here.  It's such a great fine motor activity and just SO much fun :)

I cut the pumpkins apart and we got busy playing!  They went first into a fall sensory bin.  Perfect for hiding in corn, counting, seeking, and exploring!  I think we'll be using our little pumpkins a lot this fall :)
