Sensory trays are a great way to get your child using there fine motor skills and also using there imagination. This Halloween Mini Sensory Tray is a bit of seasonal fun.
What do I need to make the sensory tray?
- A tray or box
- Recycled pots and containers (I used 3 that would fit inside the tray)
- Black Permanent Marker Pen (adults only)
- Split Red Lentils
- Children’s tweezers and spoon
How do I make the sensory tray?
- Sprinkle lentils so that they cover the bottom of the tray or box.
- Decorate your recycled pots for halloween using a the permanent marker (adults only). I drew pumpkin faces on mine but you could decorated however you want, maybe with bats, spiders or cobwebs?
- Arrange the pots onto of the lentils, perhaps adding some lentils to some of the pots as an ‘invitation to play’.
- Then add the children’s tweezers and spoon.
- Place the activity where your child can access it and explore the lentils, pots and utensils. Demonstrate how they can pick up the lentils, pour and tip them and measure them. See where their imagination takes them.
You could also add some Halloween Spiders to your Halloween Mini Sensory Tray.
