Fun is at your fingertips!
Sensory Activity: Cranberry Scoop
This is a picture of Scooping Cranberries. Fresh Cranberries in water are fun because they float! We used large spoons to scoop them out of the water into a bowl, then dump them back in the roasting pan, and do it all over again! This provided a good 30 minutes of fun. You can add different kitchen accessories to enhance the fun, like measuring scoops, or large slotted spoons. To reduce the wet mess, put a large towel underneath to soak up all the spills, and cover the kids in an apron (I discovered this AFTER the picture was taken). When you're all done playing, you can stick the cranberries in the fridge to play with again tomorrow, or use them to make cranberry sauce, or yummy cranberry-apple muffins!
