Halloween Sensory Play on the Light Table {Light & Reflections Series}

For this month's Light & Reflections series, the theme is Halloween. So, inspired by candy corn, I put together this super simple sensory bin for the light table. Although a bit messy, this sensory activity is a great way to practice mark-making and writing.

Halloween Sensory Bin Light Table Activity for Kids

To put together this candy corn inspired sensory bin, I used:

I used the leftover tapioca from this spider sensory play to create the candy corn sensory bin. I simply divided it into three portions and colored one section orange, one section yellow, and left the other section plain. I added a couple squirts of liquid watercolors to the tapioca until it was well combined. Then I arranged it in a glass dish as follows:

The boys loved to draw in the tapioca using their fingers, making this activity a great fine motor prewriting activity.

K lost interest quickly when his hands became sticky, but J, on the other hand, fully embraced it. J swirled and mixed the colors together, which caused the tapioca to end up looking like lava. So pretty, right?

And I love that J left a handprint in the tapioca before declaring that he was all done. It looks so cool!
