• Orange, green and purple Jello

  • Three bowls

  • Mixing spoons

  • A bin for sensory play

  • Edible Halloween themed candy

  • Water

  • Jello molds (optional)


Begin by making the orange, green and purple Jello in separate bowls according to the package instructions.

Place your Jello in the fridge to set for four hours.

You can also pour some into Halloween themed Jello molds at this time if you like, but this is optional.

Once the Jello has set entirely, break it up into chunks and add it to the bin or container you want to use for sensory play.

Top the Jello with different types of shaped Halloween candy.


  1. We made something like this for food play. It was difficult for me to watch him make a huge mess, but it helped him a lot!

  2. I love this idea. I can see many kids benefitting from an activity like this. I want to win!
