After spotting a fantastic hand mould in PoundLand I knew it would be perfect for a sensory Halloween activity. We reused the spiders that we added to our Halloween Spider Sensory Bin which was featured on Building Blocks and Acorns. After our jelly digging failure last year I had learnt the lesson to add extra gelatine to the jelly for it to set firmly. It worked in our second attempt at jelly digging and our edible jelly worms so hoped that it would work again. Our Halloween jelly hand turned out perfectly.
I also used the Halloween ice cube tray that has featured in our Halloween Sensory Bin. The additional gelatine meant the jelly would stand up.
I placed the Halloween jelly hand on the Tuff Spot Tray in our living room and put out a variety of formula scoops. Adam was not impressed.
Despite several attempts Adam only managed to scoop out one of the spiders. I don’t know if he was put off by the hand shape or the spiders but he didn’t want to go near!
Perhaps Adam will be more interested in our Halloween jelly hand next year!
