Sensory bins are one of the things that can keep a kid occupied for hours while playing independently. And it’s more inviting if they see their favorite toys inside the bins.

Take trucks for example. Mainly, the excavator.

While I was assembling Niko’s trucks again (he likes to remove some parts and would always come to me to put it back – now, I permanently attached them with hot glue 😂) I thought why not make a Halloween-themed sensory bin with his trucks.

Wooden tray
Toy trucks
White sand or you can use any sand
Plastic spoon and fork
Small rocks
Small wood pieces
Some unwanted plants I found outside the house
Cutouts of a haunted house, bones and skulls

Arrange the materials and serve to play.

Niko was crying his heart out while waiting for me to finish arranging the tray. Yes, literally crying. He wants to play with his trucks already. This was one of the loudest bin preparations I did so far. 🤣

By the way, he likes the combination of sand and trucks. Every once in a while, we allow him to play on the sand outside the house and he would bring either his dinosaurs or the trucks.

He got busy hiding the bones under the sand or putting them inside the garbage truck. 😂

All’s well that ends well. I left the bin for him to play the whole day.

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.


  1. Hahaha. I’m so tired of putting the parts back over and over again. He didn’t noticed it yet. 😀 I’m looking forward to his reaction once he realized he won’t be able to remove them anymore.

Let me know what you think 🐰
