Fun Sensory Bag Ideas | Cute Beltz

Sensory Bags are a great way for kids to expand their sense of touch, creativity, and adventure.  Giving your child the chance to play with different types of textures and objects helps them to build new ways of talking about the world. Suddenly the tree is more than a tree, it’s a sapling with smooth bark or it’s a pine tree with rough bark and a sharp-pine scent. Water isn’t just wet, it can be rough (waves) or slippery with bubbles or cold and translucent when frozen or clear and still.  Squishy bags allow small children to experience the fun of “squishing” gel in their hands as well as exploring small objects and other items with their sense of touch.

Supplies

  • Bottle of clear hair gel
  • food coloring
  • Ziploc bag (quart size freezer bag works well)
  • beads
  • buttons
  • sequins

(You can easily switch up the trinkets that you put in the bag to keep sensory play interesting.)

Directions

1. Put all the hair gel into the bag.

2. Add one or two drops of food coloring.

3. Next, add the beads, sequins, buttons and other objects. Close the top of the Ziploc bag and make sure there is no air in the bag.

4. Finally, seal with a strip of duct tape across the top to prevent leaks and make it more secure for little fingers.
