October Sensory Bin of the Month

Okay, so I’ll admit it.  October has gotten away from me.  Between a whirlwind trip to Disneyland, family visiting the weekend after that, dinners with friends, Adam and I’s twelfth anniversary, taking a stained glass class, and of course the usual school days, I haven’t gotten to blog.  But, in case you’re looking for halloween inspiration, here are some posts from the past (and by the way, I found a similar disclaimer for every October that I’ve been blogging for–apparently Octobers are notoriously busy).  And I’ll have a new post up in the next couple of days.

And also, in the meantime, I wanted to share these fabulous spider webs that my sister made with a group of toddlers last week.  Super easy and fun.  Do you see the glow in the dark spider hanging out on the web?  They are marble painting with white paint on black paper plates.

Finally, all month we’ve been playing with this super fun sensory bin. It is full of red lentils, white beans, and black beans, little halloween bugs, snakes, bat, spiders, etc. from Dollar tree, some little black and orange cups, random spoons, and then my girls decided that the pompoms were a must, although I’m not sure how they fit in with the Halloween theme.
