Halloween Work Box Ideas

To continue the October theme here are a few "halloween" work box ideas!

Even at 6 and 7 my girls still appreciate being able to dig through beans. Something about being able to dig and spill stuff is just thrilling to kids. Plus it is a great sensory activity and also appeals to the preschooler. So with just a pack of black beans and some super cheap plastic bugs you can make a really cool creepy crawly sensory bin.

This isn't exactly a bin but check out this really cool I spy Bottle! This could easily be adapted for any other holiday as well!

Some other fun ideas:

Fill your box with dress up clothes (or if you don't have space you can use a notecard to let your child know the activity)


Homemade slime
Gutting a pumpkin with your hands is a great sensory activity
