Halloween Sensory Bin Activities

I love me some Halloween.  I think it’s because Halloween is October and I love both Fall and October.  I remember so well the excitement my kids brought to Halloween and I work to try and encourage that same excitement for the Brave Hero.  First on the list are Halloween Sensory Bin Activities!

I started with black turtle beans from Winco’s bulk purchase area.

Then I added red ‘jewels’ or drops of Pirate’s blood.  You choose.  A few plastic spiders to guard the jewels, the ghost of a scoundrel, and a bucket and shovel to scoop up the bounty with.  If I can come across some plastic coins for cheap, I’ll add those too.

The bucket will part of Parker’s Halloween costume.  Can you guess what he’s going to be?  It’s always a challenge to come up with a Halloween costume idea that won’t offend our Hero’s sensory issues.
