Halloween Sensory Play

We like any excuse for some sensory play here and a Halloween themed tray was a perfect excuse to engage!

This year we used water beads, the beads normally used in flower vases! These are great for sensory and fine motor skills as the children try and pick them up, both with fingers and spoon, and pour them into various cups and pots. I added some other halloween goodies and off they went.

 As ever we saw some great imaginary play with the children making wonderful potions. The aspect they were most fascinated with was pouring the slimy beads from one cup to the other, using their descriptive language to talk about the feel of the beads.
