Halloween Black Bat Sensory Bin
Today it was time to change up the sensory activity in our playroom. We’re moving on from all of our spider fun (check it out here!) and focusing more on Halloween fun. I put together our simple Black Bat Sensory Bin with just a few supplies. In my house the most low prep activities end up being the most fun, which I am totally down with. This sensory bin is no exception and this is the second year we’re doing this activity.
BLACK BAT SENSORY BIN
What you need:
You probably have most of the supplies on hand
What you do:
- To color pasta noodles or rice, I usually use a gallon freezer bag (I like thesewith the actual zipper). Add rice or noodles, coloring (food dye or liquid water colors), and a few drops of rubbing alcohol or vinegar.
- Seal the bag and move the rice around until it is completely colored.
- Add more coloring and rubbing alcohol if needed
- Let the rice dry by dumping it out onto a tray.
HINT…If you don’t have access to liquid water colors, go with purple food coloring. The bats would be just as fun
Let me know how it works out for you in comments!
