Halloween is the perfect time of year for kids to get creative and explore their senses.

A sensory bin can be a fantastic way to do that! Sensory bins are containers filled with materials like rice, sand, beans, or other fillers that allow children to explore textures, shapes, and colors hands-on.

They’re also great tools for teaching basic concepts like counting and sorting and motor skills such as pouring, scooping, and grasping.

And even though it might seem intimidating at first, making one of these colorful trays is surprisingly easy—just use these Halloween sensory bins to inspire some spooky sensory fun.
