Edible Pumpkin Patch Sensory Bin

It's hard to believe Halloween is just days away! Is it just me, or is this year flying by?!?

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!

Items Needed: 
  • 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!

  1. You could do a natural sensory bin with granola that looks like dirt and raisins for bugs!

  4. You've totally inspired me to make another sensory bin! I made one similar to this one with those yummy candy pumpkins and the kids loved it. I may have to head to the store to buy more though, because those silly kids of mine did what I would do and ate all of the pumpkins! Ha! Oh well. I would've never thought to use Cocoa Krispies! Great idea!
