Halloween Spiders Jello and Literacy Sensory Play

Here's some more Halloween sensory play! This one involves literacy learning. You can use it to teach the alphabet, phonics, and spelling with this jello while having some Halloween fun.

To make this you'll need to prepare a box of orange jello and put it into a plastic bowl. Before you put it in the fridge to set you need to add in some magnetic letters and some plastic spider rings.

I like to make this before bed, and then let it set in the refrigerator all night. Once it's ready you just take it out of the fridge and present it to your kid to play with. We take it outside with an outdoor blanket, or we do it on the kitchen floor on a plastic sheet from Dollar Tree.

My daughter loved this particular sensory play!


As she played I pointed out which letters were which since she was not even two yet. This year we're working on what sounds each letter make and putting them together to make short words.
