A sensory Activity for Babies

Why should the big kids have all of the fun at Halloween? This super simple Halloween activity will allow your teeny ones join in safely…

You will need:

  • 1-2 strong resealable bags (we use the zip-lock variety)
  • Permanent marker
  • The ‘innnards’ from a pumpkin
  • Painters tape or masking tape


Simply put the ‘innards’ from your pumpkin carving session in a ziplock bag for Baby to explore.

I drew a very quick pumpkin on the front of the bag with a permanent marker, but it isn’t strictly necessary for baby play.

If you’re worried about the bag breaking, you could try double bagging before taping it to the floor. If you don’t over-stuff the contents, you should avoid the bag ripping or tearing

Age Recommendations

For reference, E was 5 months in this photo but it would also make a great tummy time activity for younger babies.As always, please supervise closely .
