Halloween Inspired Sensory Play.

Violet and I are huge fans of sensory play, so I took it upon myself to create some Halloween inspired sensory time. 

I'm really keen on DIY activities for Violet and sensory time really doesn't have to cost the earth. I'm currently in the process of making a sensory box for Christmas, with simply household objects that I know she will love. I will pop a post up as soon as I'm done! But for today's here's a super simple and cheap sensory activity. 

We picked up a large pumpkin from Asda for £1, cut off the lid and scooped out the middle. Then rubbed the pulp and seeds on Violet. She loved the feeling, despite it being very slimy and was fascinated by the orange colour. 

I would recommend popping baby on an old towel as this gets very messy. We totally stripped off Violet so she could have nappy off time too. We managed about 15 minutes of messy play before bath time, which was just enough for us both I think!

Violet currently doesn't pick up things to pop in her mouth. Just a word of warning for older babies, the seeds are quite large and probably not great for popping in little mouths! 

Do you do any DIY sensory activities?

  1. Sensory play is a good for little ones! I work with 12 weeks - 1 year olds and i'm always covered in something! I love the idea of this one, although I think my lot would attempt to eat the seeds! At the moment we're loving playing with cooked pasta and jelly (basically anything they can ram into their mouths haha) xx

  2. This looks like a lot of fun, Violet looks like she isn't quite sure what's going on, bless her! :)
