Put together a spooky Halloween Sensory Bin for hours of exploratory play!
We’ve been exploring all kinds of ghostly goodies in our Halloween Sensory Bin. This spooky-fun activity was very easy to put together, using items that I had tucked away from last year’s Halloween bin, as well as a few new odds and ends from the dollar store.
Suggestions for your Halloween Sensory Bin:
Black and orange lentils, plastic fingers, holiday erasers, beads and jewels, Halloween rings,a couple of battery operated candles and a few spoons, jars and muffin tins for “cooking up” some spooky fun…
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.
