Halloween is a great time to push children’s sensory boundaries! There are so many gooey, gross activities you can do with them. I like to start with something simple that may feel a little odd to some children but definitely works on their tactile discrimination skills. This means they use their fingers to find their way around.

We have all made sensory bags in the past, but I usually like to combine this with a specific task especially for children that have tactile defensiveness issues, when they are aware of a beginning and an end to the activity or task, they are more apt to participate. Otherwise just asking them to touch and feel a medium that is aversive to them may be easily overwhelming.
