Pine cones, cinnamon sticks, & fall leaves

The only thing we didn't cover was taste but we could have if I made something with cinnamon. (maybe snack for after playtime?) 
After that got old we added water to our table. This made everything fun again. :) Seeing what floats and what sinks.

Have a good day thanks for reading!

I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
