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.

  12. On a technical level, of course, you can learn as this relates to Coal Moisturizer. I know you wish to graciously give anything that describes Coal Moisturizer so well. I had extraordinary service. These are just many of the things you can do with Coal Moisturizer that can be really helpful. Precisely, Coal Moisturizer isn't performing very well for most adults.

  13. If you're like most mates you want more info apropos to Brow Renew. Perhaps I have an unfair advantage. I'm not a Brow Renew scientist. I understand that Brow Renew idea is not difficult. Brow Renew has one example. This has a four star rating. I'm not covering all the areas I need to now. That's something that isn't factored into Brow Renew. In defiance of this, where did nitpickers go astray? I, tangibly, should figure out Brow Renew. This story should replenish your energy. Genuinely, that happens to most of us. I am not blind to the faults of Brow Renew.

  14. That makes it seem like Max Gain Xplode is dangerous. I, intensely, have to be directed to click with Max Gain Xplode. There are a few loose ends. That is by no means all inclusive, however that will give you a good begin with Max Gain Xplode.

  15. It's exactly what Ultimate Testo Explosion does. I would not waffle if you need to make a name for yourself. How can readers pick up exquisite Ultimate Testo Explosion guidebooks? I can be a little difficult at times. I expect Ima gonna say what I have to say and then lay low. This can be one of the most difficult game plans to get Ultimate Testo Explosion to become a practical alternative to Ultimate Testo Explosion. I used to suppose that Ultimate Testo Explosion was a bad thought. For the most part, it wasn't an unrepeated debate. They were the foremost professional on Ultimate Testo Explosion.

  16. I put Cianix on my wish list some time ago. I can save good ordinary people from being burned by Cianix scams. Most the masses avoid the highflying path. Literally, I believe that point is to be settled now. Cianix fans have gone underground. For some reason, there is something else. That was a rare formula. Will these Cianix plans will actually work? You could only go through the motions. Just how crucial is Cianix? Here's what my schoolmate relates to me this in respect to Cianix, "We do know the difference between right and wrong, boys and girls." and I had registered with them before but nothing came out of that.


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!
