Halloween Sensory Bins for Toddlers 

Sensory bins are just perfect for toddlers at Halloween! Lots of slimy, squishy, sensory fun!

These sensory bins have been very popular on our site this year so we thought we would round them all up in one place for you. When you set up a sensory bin remember that with most of these you can put a lid on them and pull them out another day.

Leave a few days between activities (mix up the play with these Halloween crafts) and they'll feel like it's a brand new activity when you pull it back out.

Fizzing Halloween Sensory Bin

This fizzing Halloween sensory bin is definitely our most popular one - it is such a lot of fun and is actually a lot easier to set up than you might think.

Witch's Brew Sensory Bin

Is it really Halloween without a good witch's brew sensory bin? For this sensory bin we used colored rice and some small Halloween themed toys. See how to set it up HERE.

Halloween Spider Rice Sensory Bin

You'll notice that this Halloween spider sensory bin uses the same rice as the witch's brew. Don't make things harder for yourself!

The best thing about using colored rice for sensory bins is that it keeps really well (put it in a ziplock bag or sealed container) so you can reuse it.

Yarn & Pom Pom Halloween Sensory Bin 

If you prefer a Halloween sensory bin that's a bit less messy than this one is what you're after - use black yarn/wool as your base and then add your other items. We used pompoms but you could use any Halloween themed items.

Halloween Shaving Cream Sensory Play with Spiders

A shaving cream sensory bin is always fun and by adding some food coloring it easily takes on a Halloween theme. We added toy spiders to ours - lots of fun!

Ghost sensory bin

Another mess free Halloween sensory bin is this ghost bin that we set up. we used shredded black paper and made ghosts out of cardboard - so simple!
