We enjoy Halloween at my house the dress up and candy goodies. I do try to keep it simple with my small kids. I know for many they do not celebrate this holiday at all and I respect that. We have never really done an activity (that I can think of) or craft for this occasion before. So what better time then now with my preschooler getting older to do a simple holiday theme with colored noodles. Colored noodles can be so much fun. We have done holiday themed noodles before and my boys loved them! I decided to do them again with a Halloween twist. This is what I came up with.
What you need:
Colored noodles, orange extract, sprinkles, platter, bowls, and plastic play pieces( I got these at Dollar Tree).
What to do:
cook & color noodles(direction in my last post) . This time I added orange extract to my orange noodles for scent. Set out noodles on platter. Set out play pieces and sprinkles. You can add bowls, spoons, etc... Then let the kids have fun playing with the fun sensory substance.
I couldn't wait for my son to smell them. I just love how the scented noodles came out. I wished I had a scent for the green ones and so did he:-)
Now it was time to start playing.
Let's add color with sprinkles. My son loved the sprinkles. Note:The color of the sprinkle did bleed on the noodles.
Love the colors!
My preschooler had so much fun adding the toy pieces. We went over the colors of them and what they were. He had fun matching the colors of the toys to the colors of the noodles. He also had fun serving mommy up a noodle dish to taste(pretend taste).
Hope you and your family may have a little sensory noodle fun too. I know we will be playing with them again. Noodles are always a hit at my house.
Please do come and visit us again. We would love to have you back.
All kids are different and only you can decide how you let your kids play. And with what materials you let them play with. My children are supervised when playing. Please keep this in mind with any post you read of mine!
