OT Activity of the Day:
Halloween Sensory Bins
Target Age Range: 3 and up
If you have pretend spiders, pumpkins, ghosts, bats, and some rice/beans then you have a Halloween sensory bin! All you have to add are some tongs, empty spice containers, scoopers, and anything else that will promote fine motor manipulation.
Sensory boxes are great for young preschoolers. They promote fine motor manipulation and offer a way to calm down at the end of the day. My go-to sensory box adds are jumbo tweezers and handy scoopers, both are found on Amazon!
As always, don’t forget to put down a bed sheet underneath the sensory bin to help catch any run away rice or beans. Enjoy!
