Halloween Sensory Play Ideas for Toddlers

Halloween sensory play for toddlers is probably one of the most fun things I've done with my toddler, and it was the holiday activity that she loved the most. Planning Halloween activities for toddlers can be tricky, as you need to find a balance between scary and fun, while still being age-appropriate with the resources.  

With these great sensory play ideas, your baby or toddler will get the feel of Halloween without the scariness that is often associated with the holiday.  We're a huge fan of sensory play at My Bored Toddler, and if you haven't already, you should have a look at our Autumn/Fall Sensory Play Ideas where we share over 60 great ideas.
