Next in our list of Halloween activities is the Halloween sensory bin.

I made Niko a sensory bin with his favorite Halloween things included.
Ghosts, check.
Bats, check.
Spiders, present.

We went to the center last weekend and I thought I could buy some Halloween stuff to add to the bin. None. There was none. I didn’t see a single Halloween decoration in the stores. No spiders, no bats, no ghosts.

My husband reminded me that Halloween is more of an American thing and Suriname doesn’t really celebrate it. He’s probably right.
We went to check a party shop, they do sell some Halloween decorations, but I can also make them myself.
I guess the best thing for me to do is to make my own Halloween pieces.


Pipe cleaners in orange and neon green
Bottle caps in purple and green
Purple and orange beads
Small plastic forks in black and green
Scoop (that came from the milk can)
Wooden spatula
Eyeballs. About the eyeballs, I misplaced my googly eyes when we moved to our new apartment, so I used the candy eyeballs instead.
Cardstock ghosts, bats and spiders

The cardstock ghosts, bats and spiders plus the vinyl spider attached to the wooden spatula were cut using a Cricut.

I arranged the materials in a medium stainless bowl and invited Niko to play. He had so much fun that in the later part, he added his dinosaurs to join in. Well, of course.

NOTE: Cricut is a life-saver, you guys.

An Asian mermaid lost in transition.

I live in an enchanted forest at the end of a rainbow. I have a little window in my room where I can see unicorns playing in the grass field at day and magical fairies dancing under the silvery moon at night.


Let me know what you think 🐰
