Create this simple sandbox alternative that's fun for Halloween and encourages kids to search for treats.
What You Need:
- Large clear plastic tub like the one in the photo
- Several bags of uncooked black beans
- A large orange bowl
- A Halloween themed cup or plain orange cup
- Plastic spiders, insects, skeletons, or anything that would be fun to dig out!
What You Do:
Fill the container with beans and then mix in spiders, insects, skeletons, etc. Use the bowl or cup to scoop and see what you can uncover.
Want to make it a little more challenging? Include cards with pictures of hidden items. Invite each child to pick a card and race to see who can find their item first. Or set a timer and see how many things kids can uncover in a designated amount of time.
