My son filled the little pumpkins and also counted and sorted the jewels the coins and the plastic skull rings.
My daughter played with the activity for a fair amount of time. However, the gems caught her attention which must have made her think of her marbles because she was off on her own using her tongs and adding marbles to our sensory bottle.
The best part for me though was watching both of my kids enjoy an activity together.
Here's what I included with this bin:
- Split Green Peas
- Plastic Pumpkins
- Pom pom's
- Skull rings
- Bat rings
- Plastic bugs
- Googly eyes
- Spider stickers
- (the gems and coins were after thoughts because I remembered how much my kids have liked them in other sensory bins)

These were extra's that were available if the kids wanted to add more in.
