Halloween Sensory Bin with Spaghetti for Kids
Sensory bins, sensory bottles, and sensory bags are my go to activity for my girls because they are so easy to put together, SO beneficial and really fun!
They can be made for a fun learning activity, on the go (sensory bottles) or themed like this one.
This spooky Halloween Spaghetti Sensory bin was a hit in our home! I added in a little monster treat stencil for extra bonus fun.

How to put together Halloween Spaghetti Sensory Bin
It’s really easy to dye cooled spaghetti. There are a number of different ways but the funnest way I’ve found is this:
Cook your spaghetti. Drain.
Let it cool down.
Then, the fun part..
Insert cooled down spaghetti into zip lock bag
Insert about ½ cup of water and food coloring of choice.
Close the zip lock bag tightly.
Shake it up
Once the pasta is fully coated (it takes seconds) drain it.
Then, leave it out to dry in a pot, pan, bin…
Finally, once its dry, you’re spaghetti is all set and ready for play.
Add it into a bin or tray with fun spooky manipulatives. We used spooky eyeballs for our fun monster cut out template you can find here.
We also added in Halloween themed pom poms, spooky cauldrons and kids scissors for some fine motor practice into the mix.
And it’s all set and ready for play!
*Supervision is a must as there are smaller manipulatives within this bin.
Monster Printable for tissue box DIY
I also included a fun little bonus with this spooky sensory bin. I grabbed an old tissue box for a fun recycled activity.
In this post, you will find a freebie that includes a fun monster coloring page. You can cut it out when it’s colored and done by your little one.
Attach it to the tissue box opening with double sided tape.
