Here is a fun Fall Sensory Table idea for you and the kids. It even has a Pumpkin Spice scent. I have been dying to make “clean mud” with the boys for a long time. Now was a great time to try it. We had a great time making our Pumpkin Spice Clean Mud. Once the play recipe was ready we could not wait to add it to our sensory table for playtime!
Pumpkin Spice Clean Mud- fall sensory table

Supplies/What we used:
borax – optional
What we did:
We tore up a bunch (2 rolls) of toilet paper. I also had a small bag of white tissue paper the boys tore up last year and we added that. Then I added water to a measuring cup(think it was 4 cups). To the water I added the food coloring and spices. I also added about a 1/4 a cup borax. While I did this my husband grated the 1 bar of ivory soap into the toilet paper.
I poured the mixture into the bin with the grated soap and toilet paper. My husband and the older boys started to mix it up.
Little brother helped add more spices to make it smell just right. It was great that we turned making clean mud into family time. Even baby brother was there watching from his chair.
Once we got through playing mixing up the pumpkin spice clean mud, we put the lid on it. We left it overnight.
The next afternoon I got it out for big brother to play in. Little brother was ill so he didn’t get to play in this sensory table. He is doing much better now! And we look forward to him making up playtime in our next fall table.
I often say simple isn’t boring. And simple sensory table is the way I went with this one. I added the clean mud to one side of our table and a few bowls and spoons to the other. I also gave him a bottle of cinnamon to sprinkle for extra fun. He didn’t waste anytime getting his hands in the mud. He whipped up my mom and I some yummy pumpkin pies.
