Halloween is a wonderful time to delve into “spooky” science with the kids. Below are more than 25 Halloween science and sensory activities to try with the kids this month!
Integrating science activities and sensory activities into the preschool classroom (and at home!) can be seriously fun for everyone involved. That, alone, is reason enough to do these activities in my opinion.
On top of that, there is so much learning that takes place exploring science and sensory concepts. Here are just a few of the concepts these Halloween ideas cover:
- Exploring and observing the world using the 5 senses
- Colors and shapes
- Cause and effect
- The scientific method
- Fine motor skills
- Language development
I’m going to stop there and get down to the awesome Halloween sensory and science activities.
