STEP 2: Prepare your sensory bags


Now that you have all your supplies, it's time to prepare your sensory bags! Fill each one with hair gel and hand soap. We chose to alternate between the two, but you can use both in each one if you'd like.

STEP 3: Fill the sensory bags with spiders


Once you've filled the sensory bags, have your toddlers help you fill them with a handful of spiders. You could even sort them by colour and fill each one according to colour for an extra learning exercise.

STEP 4: Close and glue the sensory bags shut


Now it's time to close them shut! Make sure they're extra tight and then use the super glue to glue them so they don't accidentally pop open. (or worse, your toddler opens them and makes a big mess!)

You can also get some fun festive washi tape to use instead of super glue. How fun would these Halloween washi tapes be?!
