It’s October, so that means it’s almost Halloween. I know, I know, it’s only the fist week in October, but is it ever too early to start celebrating? J’s been really excited about it, so I decided it was time for a Halloween sensory box.
It is a simple box with a base of black beans with a few white beans thrown in. I found some cute Halloween containers of different shapes and sizes, threw in a whole mess of Halloween scatter I found at Target. I added a few Halloween cookie cutters, a skeleton, and a big spoon for scooping.
J immediately dumped out all the scatter and got straight to work filling containers.
He scooped and scooped, and ended up using the black caldrons to fill the other containers.
He worked really hard on this and stayed very focused on his work.
He ended up with a pretty empty try, and two really full pails.
This was another successful sensory box. I’m always amazed at how sensory boxes can capture the attention of children of all ages. They are so engaging, and allow for lots of creative thought.
Check out how J played with our sensory box from last year here.
