This spider sensory play idea for the light table is so simple to put together and it has just the right amount of spookiness for Halloween. It kind of creeps me out, mostly because I don't particularly like spiders. And when I showed the pictures to my husband, he was like, "That's really creepy." So if you don't like spiders, prepare yourself for colorful, glowing spiders plastered all over your screen.

Halloween Sensory Bin Light Table Activity for Kids

This sensory tray is so easy to put together. I used:

I filled a glass dish with the quick tapioca and put in just enough water to cover it. When it was fully absorbed, I added a touch more until it was a slime-esque, mushy mixture. How's that for official measurements and directions?! Haha...my husband hates that I never measure things, especially when cooking.

Then I added the spiders and put it on the light table. Looks spooky doesn't it?

The boys liked to drag the spiders through the "spider eggs." They also plucked the spiders out of the dish and counted them. They also enjoyed writing in the tapioca with their fingers. At least J did. K touched the tapioca, said "yucky," and then declared that he was all done.
