BOO! Ready for Halloween Sensory Play in the Sink?!
It’s time to share a spooky idea for sensory play with a Halloween theme in your bath and sink. The mess won’t be as scary because it will be contained to the bath and sink.
This week it’s all about ghosts. Growing a Jeweled Rose shares ghost play in the bath, and our ghost activity takes place in the sink.
We made ice ghosts to play with in the sink.
How to Make Halloween Sensory Ice Ghosts
- Color water in bowl with a squeeze or two of white tempera paint and stir.
- Pour water in ice cube tray or small containers only filling about 1/2 full.
- Place google eyes in each square or container.
- Place in freezer and allow to freeze.
- Cover top of frozen ice ghosts with more water
- Allow time to freeze.
- Take ghosts out of freezer and allow to defrost a bit. This makes it easier to remove from containers.
- Mix 1/2 liquid dish soap and 1/2 washable tempera pain.
- Test a small area of the mirror and mirror frame by allowing paint to dry and then rinse with water. Make sure it does not stain your particular mirror or frame.
- Paint the mirror in whatever design you like.
A big part of the fun was the ice break apart. She even had fun when the ghosts melted, and she played with the googly eyes in the soapy water for a long time.
You won’t be haunted by a messy bathroom once the ghost activity is finished since all of it simply wipes down and the paint washes down the drain. Remember to fish out the googly eyes before draining the water. Please test an area of your sink to make sure the paint doesn’t stain it. My sink didn’t stain, but your’s could react differently.
Don’t forget to see the creative ghost play Growing a Jeweled Rose made in her bath.
Now it’s time to fill your sink and have some Halloween fun with your very own sensory ice ghosts.
