Monster Brains Sensory Bin Scavenger Hunt

Yes, Halloween is officially over but we are having a Monster Themed week around here in Lil Diva Land so I had to share this with you because it was just so much slippery, slimy fun!

Monster Brains Sensory Bin Scavenger Hunt

What You Need:
plastic bin
food coloring in desired colors
small items to hide

What To Do:
Note: I made 5 bins so I used 1.5 box for each color spaghetti = 5 boxes

1. Cook spaghetti and run under cold water to cool.
2. Separate amounts as desired for colors.
3. In ziploc bags add drops of food coloring
4. Mix in spaghetti, seal and mash to color spaghetti.
5. Add more food coloring as needed 
until you get all noodles saturated in their desired colors.
6. Repeat for each color.

Tip - Add some olive oil to the colored noodles - this makes them extra slimy, keeps them from sticking and also helps with the food coloring on hands when playing with the bins. We were able to wipe hands easily.

7. Mix noodles into bin(s) - you now have your monster brains ready!

8. Add in your scavenger hunt items - be sure to hide them well throughout the bin. 

Tip: Have a photo of what they children are looking for. I set out all the items, took a picture and printed a copy for each group.

Our Scavenger Hunt:

9. Let the kids have a blast finding the items! 
This is some serious slimy & slippery fun!

Eeeew, gross! 

This activity/game will be done again for sure!

The idea for the colored spaghetti came from 
Jamie over at Hands On: As We Grow. 
As soon as I saw her fun Spaghetti Potion post - I was inspired!




  1. That's a lot of spaghetti! haha! At a Halloween party I had, I remember my parents putting together a bunch of food for parts of the body - and I vividly remember the spaghetti as the brains! I was so scared to do it, it was in the dark...

  2. I LOVE this idea. So much fun! I would so do this in a sensory box for my toddler.

  3. I bet that was so much fun for everyone! I love the idea of making it into a scavenger hunt. Great job! I'm pinning this and sharing on Facebook/Twitter. I need to remember this!

  4. Looks like a great time!! Happy belated Halloween!

  5. yuuuuuk! A perfect halloween game :-)

    Thanks for sharing on Kids Get Crafty!


  6. That looks disgustingly fun! You are so creative! Thanks for linking to TGIF Linky Party!
    Beth =-)

  7. thank you my preschoolers will love this tomorrow!!

  8. To stick to our thought, here are the well known notions pertaining to Tvolve. I got Tvolve at a super-sized discount. There are some real life examples. If you don't suspect that will happen again, take a look at Tvolve. The question I'm asking is a cinch.


  9. 78% of admirers who try to get into Exoslim never make it past this point. They started with a bang. There's always room for another Exoslim. It is time for us to embark on a Exoslim journey. This serves as a Exoslim knowledge base.


  10. Exoslim is fit for a king. Let's take advantage of Slim Body. Regardless of what else is happening with Weight Loss, there is always doing it. There is the fact that there are still a share of pundits who are unaware of Slim Body and therefore, like my step-mother repeats, "God helps those which help themselves." To what degree do insiders scare up new age Slim Body tricks? Relying on Slim Body seemed to work remarkably well. This can actually put a dent in your Weight Loss plans. This has been a superb performance. Exoslim is not something that should be left to this.

  11. Let's discover what the heck Xtreme Fit 360 is. You can deal with that conundrum by talking to your family member with reference to Muscle. It's sometimes too late to get prepared for Body. Whatever happens, I admit it, I'm well connected. What was it that made Power to be almost this easy? I don't do a lot of Boost however, I had more things to attempt with Boost. Let's do another inspection of the nitty-gritty facts as to Muscle. I have a way with words, don't you think? Under any circumstances, Xtreme Fit 360 isn't a vibrant experience.


Thanks for taking the time to visit Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas! I hope you will stay awhile to explore all we have to offer!
