The little guy is all about farms and tractors and baby girl is really enjoying playing along with us when she can. I’m really not surprised, though.

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it or not, but I’m sure that most of you have noticed from the pictures recently that we’ve totally been including her as much as possible.

It’s starting to get kinda chilly in the mornings, but luckily warms up as the day goes on. We did this fun Corn Scooping Farm Preschool Monthly Theme Sensory Bin early in the afternoon and it was gorgeous outside.

Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.

This preschool curriculum is so quick & easy. Most activities use either supplies that were sent to us or things that we already have around the house.

We grabbed our sensory bin, mix and measure set, and of course some corn. Like I said, easy-peasy to set up. 

Silos are narrow structures, similar to a tower but with dome-like caps. They are used to hold grains and to keep them from spoiling.

Set Up

  • Place a variety of scooping tools in the bin.
  • Explore picking the corn kernels off the cob.
  • Tape cardboard tubes onto the wall then invite children to scoop corn into the tubes.

Big Questions

  • How do farmers get the grains into the silo? 
  • What tools do farmers use?
  • What might happen if the grains get stuck in the silo?
  • What other materials could you pour though the tubes?

We actually still have our corn scooping sensory bin out for the little guy to play with. Unfortunately this particular activity wasn’t a good idea for baby girl. The corn is definitely a choking hazard. We took advantage of naptime and the little guy and I hung out together and he practiced his scooping skills. Either way, it was a win-win.
