We are just beginning our fall-themed fun + learning so I put together a corn maze sensory bin for Leana! I thought of this idea after wondering if she’d be interested in actually visiting a corn maze.
I try to incorporate learning objectives into our crafts & activities so with us working on letter recognition, I thought it’d be perfect to incorporate the alphabet in some way. I decided to use 2 different sized corn pieces, writing uppercase letters on the bigger ones & lowercase on the smaller ones.
So here’s what you’ll need to recreate this activity:
- Plastic bin
- Base – I used dry noodles but you can use filler paper, beans, etc.
- Decorative corn – sold out online but your local store should have them!
This bin was super easy to set up! I used a permanent marker to write letters on the corn husks. Then I add the filler to the bin & mixed the pieces of corn on top.
This activity can definitely be modified based on age & skill level. Words can be formed with the letters, numbers or shapes can be used in place of letters.. so feel free to edit the activity based on your child’s learning needs. & if it’s just for fun only – just toss the materials inside & let your kids have at it!
