Boo! Hiding Faces Halloween Sensory Bottle For Preschoolers And Toddlers
It’s isn’t even Halloween yet and the kids are already working on those Christmas lists. I didn’t even know what a peavey revalver was until tonight and since Bub seen it, it is now on the ever growing list. CB’s list is even worse….almost to the point that Santa’s sleigh will have to return back to the North Pole for a refill….twice.
So in the interest of my sanity, I’m working on more Halloween posts. Let me have my Halloween before the nightly exchange of what I want for Christmas!
Here is a Halloween sensory bottle idea that had even the older kids interested! My older kids enjoyed watching this one in action and I even thought of a fun game to go along with it for them. I’ll tell you a little more about that in a minute but first I want to tell you how to create your own. It’s pretty easy to set up with very few ingredients and they ones it does have are customize-able!
What you need:
Black Food Coloring
Halloween plastic toys or googly eyes (or both :))
Glitter (optional but you know us… we like to sparkle!)
Spooky face window clings or Sharpie marker
I used corn syrup for a few different reasons…one was that I don’t cook with oil so I didn’t have any in the cabinet and another was cause I did have corn syrup. The biggest reason was that corn syrup is slow and oozy unlike oil. It takes it longer to move around the bottle.
Step one: Add corn syrup and water.
Step two: add food coloring, toys, and glitter.
Step three: add window clings or black tape spooky faces. If you draw on the faces, I would suggest doing that first.
This makes for a great calm down bottle!
I found these window decals at the Dollar Tree I believe although I can’t find them again. I think a sharpie would accomplish the same look or black tape cut into shapes. Which gives me a new idea about creating a I Spy bottle with tape and shapes. Another day I suppose lol but more than likely I will forget about it. 🙂
Now as I was saying about a game for the older kids:
I had them spin it to find a face and then try to redraw the face on a piece of paper. They took turns and the results were pretty funny. 🙂
Now I’m wondering what would happen if I add water beads to this…experiment time!
Thanks for visiting!
