Fancy some sensory play without the mess ? Help is at hand in the form of sensory bags. Just fill up a ziplock bag, shut it and for extra security tape it shut.
Paint – either one colour or two colours in opposite corners of the bag so they can be mixed
Hair gel and glitter
Cornflour and water
Shaving foam and a few drops of food colouring
Oil and coloured water
Sand and water
Miniature toys or googly eyes and hair gel or water
You can also create windows in bags by taping over part of the bag and just leaving a few gaps. Children can manipulate objects until they can see them and watch them appear and disappear from view.
