Sensory Bags are a great way for little ones to expand their sense of touch, creativity, and adventure, and they are very easy to make- the possibilities are endless.
Step 1: Supplies
1. Hair gel (I got mine from the dollar store)
2. "Ziplock" type plastic bags (I also got these from the dollar store)
3. Heavy duty tape (Yup, you guessed it from the dollar store)
4. Stickers (Or really anything that does not have sharp edges)
Step 2: Hair Gel
Fill bag with hair gel. I used about half the bottle of hair gel. More can also be used.
Step 3: Add Items
For this bag we used fun space stickers (which I had on hand) but you can really use anything, just make sure it does not have sharp edges. Add your items inside the bag.
Step 4: Add Glitter (optional)
We added some glitter to give the bag a shiny effect. But this step is optional.
Step 5: Seal Bag
Before sealing your bag make sure they are no air bubbles. Seal your bag and reinforce it by taping off four sides with a heavy duty tape.
Step 6: All Done
Your sensory bag is now complete. Now let your little ones have fun . It is so squishy. You can also make these bags educational by using foam letters, plastic numbers, colot pom-poms - the possibilities are endless!
