If you follow my blog you know its no secret we like to play in our food almost as much as we like to play in water. I love setting up food play because like water play it is great for both my toddler and preschooler to enjoy together.
What I used & did for our sensory Halloween food play: We had a box of fruit flavored cereal that the boys would not eat for me. I used this to fill up to large plastic bowls. I had fun Halloween plastic pieces from The Dollar Tree so I added those to the bowls. I got out 2 spoons and 2 bottoms to plastic pumpkins we have but you could use small bowls. I also had the 2 Halloween plastic buckets out for them. I then set the pool out on the back deck. I cleaned it out a little so it was safe for them to eat off of. I put the food bowls and buckets inside the pool. Last the boys jumped in ready to play.
I had so much fun playing with them. I loved watching them use their own creativity to guide our play with what I sat out for them. The boys did not fight and only took each others buckets a few times! This equal a hit at my house. Hope you and your family may have some food fun too.
