|FUN|Halloween sensory bath



In the week, T wasn't feeling too well with a cough and cold that's going around. To cheer him up, I thought I'd make him a themed sensory bath, something I've not done for a long time.


He absolutely loved it! He spent a good 45 minutes in there, mixing potions, casting spells and counting the Halloween items in the bath.


I used our pumpkin bath 'stickers' as an extra visual sensory element for this bath.

We used: I've added in links to the products I used for this post, if you use them I receive a small commission from Amazon.
Orange food colouring (we use Wilton's as you need very little to get a good colour)

Various Halloween toys eg: bats, rats, spiders, skulls eyeballs - look out in the poundshops!


I mixed the food colouring gel in a little boiling water to dissolve before pouring in the bath. We managed this lovely orange colour with about a quarter of a teaspoon. 

T spent his time casting spells using his 'wand' (black cocktail stirrer) and a Halloween popcorn cup 😂.

The orange and clove oils added a lovely aroma to the sensory experience and I'm sure the clove oil and steam from the water helped a little with his congestion. 

We counted the different Halloween props I used and did some basic addition/subtraction too, which T always enjoys. 

 

I thought at nearly 5 that T was over sensory experiences like this, but I was so wrong!  He loved it and actually asked for more.

The gauntlet has well and truly been set down now for me to pull more out of the bag!
