Put together a spooky Halloween Sensory Bin for hours of exploratory play!
My toddlers and preschoolers have been exploring all kinds of ghostly goodies in this Halloween Sensory Bin this week.
What to put in a Halloween Sensory Bin
Black and orange lentils make a great base for a Halloween sensory bin. You could also dye some rice orange and black for your base.
Add dollar store items and small instruments and tools:
- plastic fingers
- halloween erasers
- madis gras beadsads
- plastic jewels and gems
- Halloween rings
- battery operated candles
- scoops, spoons, jars and mini muffin tin
Skills your child will develop while playing with a sensory bin:
Scooping, pouring, tweezing, sifting, transferring, matching, sorting, counting, just to name a few.
The sight, feel and sound of the materials as your child plays in a sensory bin stimulate the senses, and add a delightful element of fun.
