We Dig Halloween!
I bought these black beans and orange lentils for another Halloween craft but when we made it the real hit was scooping and pouring… and spilling! So we ran out to the dollar store got some fun plastic creatures to add to it to complete this easy DIY sensory tub that is small enough for even the tiniest apartment.
- Gather your materials. You will need a plastic container, some dried black beans, some dried orange lentils, we added macaroni for bones, a spoon/scoop, some plastic spiders, snakes and other spooky creatures!
- Have your child help pour the beans and lentils into the tub.
- Grab the creatures and hide them under the beans.

What a great (and easy) thing to do! Love it. 🙂
The boys will love this. I just have to pick up some spiders. I’m guessing the dollar store will have this stuff. 🙂 Thanks for the idea!

I have to say….
THIS IS A GREAT IDEA!!!
We have a water table that I brought in for the winter and put on some plastic down in the basement for my son. He LOVEs it! I just put rice in, but I love this idea! I think it will be great for our meetup group’s Halloween party too! I know the kids will love it!
