After checking out Pinterest for some great ideas, I had a lot of fun making this Halloween sensory box.
I think part of the joy of making these boxes is collecting all the items to go inside. Rose wasted no time jumping straight into play.
As before, we try to keep the contents on the mat. Some of the split peas and lentils did roll off the mat but most were easy to clean up by carefully grabbing the ends and pouring back into the box.
Rose loves emptying containers (and making a mess)!
She particularly enjoys the beans and lentils; scooping, pouring, lifting. The little plastic spoons were a hit as she is enjoying using them at meal times.
Daisy went straight for the finger puppets. She pointed out that the mommy and rather scary looking skeleton were the same colour and then started role-playing.
The rubber bands were fun and we enjoyed working out what they spelled out. Boo!
I gave Daisy the option to use this math sorter. She began but grew impatient as Rose scooped lentils into and messed up her sorting.
What Halloween sensory play have you been doing?
