Halloween Cauldron sensory bin: created with non-toxic tempra paint and white rice. Add some fun and brightly colored spooky items and you've got yourself a fun halloween cauldron bin for your kids to enjoy for days.

1.Gather all of your supplies.  Setting everything up prior to introducing this to your child, helps for less mess.

Tip for not stressing about the mess:

  • Keep baby wipes close by
  • Prep the area with a drop cloth or old bed sheet to catch any spills
  • Put your child in old play clothes that can get dirty and messy

2. Let your children scoop up the white rice into plastic baggies.  

3.  Pour a small amount of non-toxic tempra paint (we love this from S&S Worldwide). 

4. Zip up the baggie tightly and let your child help you mix the rice into the color.  Fun sensory activity all on its own!

5.  While the paint is drying, bring out the small toys that you set aside.  Let the children choose which ones they would like to have in their bin. 

4.  Let the children pour their rice into the cauldron or sensory bin and add in the toys.  They can play with this for days!

Store the colored rice in zip lock baggies, or other storage containers (we like these) and you can bring this out again and again for years to come.
