Meagan Forsgren from ILS Learning shows us how to create a fun game for kids. For more information, go here.

Mystery Halloween Hunt

This is by far my favorite sensory activity and can be great for the kids who need lots of sensory input.

Here is what you will need:

  • Blind fold
  • Carrots
  • Peeled grapes
  • Cooked spaghetti noodles
  • Dried apricots
  • Popcorn kernels

Add all these objects in separate bowls and then blindfold your child. Remember, if this is too scary for your child, either remove the blindfold or try a different activity. You can tell them you went on a monster hunt and brought back different items. Have them feel all the objects with their hands and fingers. Here’s what the mystery items could be:

  • Peeled grapes = monster eyes
  • Carrot slices = witch’s fingers
  • Corn kernels = vampire teeth
  • Spaghetti noodles = Frankenstein brains
  • Apricots = trolls ears

After they touch the objects, remove the blindfold so they can see what the items are so they aren’t scared.
