Halloween Noodles Sensory Activity Bin
We have really been loving our spooky spider sensory bin, I decided to create a spooky noodle bin for my girls. This time I used a smaller bin and it worked out just as well!
We really enjoy sensory bins so much in this home. It can be created in so many different ways.
I can create a bin that is themed, for a birthday party, or to my daughters liking for that specific day based on her mood, just for fun, for a learning experience… so many ways!
As I mentioned in my last post, sensory bins are definitely top 5 in our household. It is one of those types of play that just works well for everyone.

Halloween Sensory Noodle Activities for Toddlers
My 2 year old used these ikea utensils to scoop and serve onto these ikea plates. It really works well for fine motor practice!
She enjoyed seeing the colors of the noodles. I would call out, “Orange and Green”, so that she was familiar that there were different colors throughout the bin.
You can also try singing a song to the different colors of the noodles while they play – learning through play at its best!

Halloween Sensory Noodle Activities for Pre-school
Sensory noodles are so much fun for preschoolers. Playing with the noodles is a great way to imagine up little ideas and explore their inner world through play.
The noodles are also thin and perfect for practicing fine motor skills and hand-eye amongst many other benefits.
For an educational approach, you can try counting the noodles with your preschooler. Lay out each noodle and count them with her/him.
If you dye the pasta with food coloring, practice naming the different colors that you see!
For more advanced school aged children, you can try laying out 2 green pastas next to 3 orange pastas. Then, ask them, “If I have 2 green ones and add 3 orange ones, how many do I have in total?”
