Although we do love our Netflix, I try to keep my kids busy with other activities, too! One of our frequent activities is sensory play. In honor of the upcoming holiday, we filled our sensory bin with some Halloween treats!
Here's our completely edible pumpkin patch! So simple, so fun, and so tasty!
When I say simple, I mean simple!
- Sensory Bin (I used a 12 quart Sterilite container)
- Cocoa Krispies
- Candy Pumpkins
- Measuring cups, spoons, and a small basket for play
Setup is quick and easy! I started with a clean bin and utensils, poured in the cereal, "planted" the pumpkins, and tossed in the utensils.
Lily was very eager to try it out!
Lily LOVED this sensory bin! After she was done playing, we put the lid on the bin, washed the utensils, and put it aside so the other kids could play. They loved it, too!
All of our sensory play activities have been a hit, but this one was, by far, the favorite!
All the scooping and pouring and planting and picking was fun, but snacking on cereal and candy pumpkins made it even better!
