I used to do more Halloween crafts when my 2 girls were little. As much as my boys do enjoy some arts & crafts, they really like building, digging and exploring more than sitting still. If I do want them to sit for a while in one place, one thing they do enjoy is a sensory bin activity. I did this post with 3 sensory activities a few years ago and have repeated them all quite a few times. My boys are SO into Halloween this year and I decided to make a super simple Halloween sensory bin. This year easy, inexpensive and was loads of fun for them. Here’s how we made it:
Simple Halloween Sensory Bin:
- Dry black beans
- Bin – we used an orange Home Depot paint tray because I happened to have one. It made for great Halloween colors!
- Mini Pumpkin
The boys played with this, set up the skeletons and we also played a lot of “hide the spiders”. A lot of people asked last time if the beans make a mess. It can, so either use a deeper bin so not as many fall out or let them play with it outside. This is a fun activity for a Halloween party for little ones or even a classroom. Enjoy this super simple Halloween sensory bin!
Pin this sensory bin for later:
