Halloween Sensory Bin

 
 
With Our Trick Or treating postponed until this weekend (due to Hurricane Sandy weather), we have been continuing with the Halloween activities for a few extra days.
 
This Halloween Sensory bin was very much needed this morning! 
 
Sometimes, you can tell that all-out chaos is about to let loose in the house, unless Mom comes in to rescue the littlest (babies who can not-quite run) from out of harms way…flying couch cushions anyone??
 
I brought out this sensory bin and the couches were saved from three bouncing (catapulting?) children.
 
 
 
It’s a great addition to a spider web obstacle course, too!

This skeleton guy had a lot of fun too 😉
For more fun with bones, check out this bone identification activity. It’s a great learning activity to use with a Halloween sensory bin.
 
 
 
All it took were googly eyes, plastic spiders, orange beads, rings, and other random Halloween stuff all mixed in with the (still squishy-hydrated-awesome) water beads!
