How to Set Up Halloween Goo Sensory Bin
Grab your large sensory bin. Add a small amount of warm water. You don’t want to add too much water as you may have to add more to make the goo the right consistency.
Next add about half of your Swamp Green Gelli Baff. To achieve the best results for the Gelli Baff, make sure to follow the instructions on the box. Use a spoon to mix the Gelli Baff solution. If its too watery add a little more powder. If its too thick add a very small amount of water.
When you have the Swamp Green Gelli Baff at the right consistency it will feel like goo and you are all set to create your Halloween sensory bin!
Next, I added, eye balls and fake spiders of different sizes and mini skeletons.
I then added a few fine motor tools like spoons, a toy ice cream scooper, and a few pots and pans and strainer.
For the best clean up results read the instructions on the Gelli Baff package for details. Add the second powder to the goo, use a spoon to mix it around and it changes it back to a liquid. This allows you to dispose of the goo down your drain which is exactly what I did! Super easy for you and fun for them!
I kept all the tools inside the goo solution as it dissolves to help clean them. The goo dissolved off and made it easier to rinse off.
This as a super fun and easy to create gooey sensory activity for Halloween. I will definitely be using Gelli Baff powder again for other fun sensory activities like this! It was easy to create and clean up!
