Witches Brew Sensory Bin: An Activity for “Room on the Broom”

halloween-sensory-water-beadsI had to use the famous water beads in our witches brew sensory activity. I found these at wal-mart, but I’ve heard you can get a better deal on water beads from Amazon. I planned this activity to go with “Room on the Broom“, but it would be a fun activity to do with anything slightly “spooky” this October.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Water beads
  2. Halloween themed items: I found these in the Halloween themed dollar section of Walmart.
  3. Water
  4. A witches Cauldren (a bowl works, too!)
  5. A large tote or bin (I recently picked up a big baking pan to use for our sensory activities)

To Play:

  1. Let your water beads grow by putting them in a container with water. This will take a few hours, so do this step in advance!
  2. Pour your water beads into a bin, add your Halloween items, and you’re ready to play!
