Get ready for some fun with these Valentine's Sensory Bags!

They are super easy to make and I'm not sure why we haven't made them before. They're great for kids of all ages. My teen even wanted to get in on the action and make one too.

For kids under two, you'd want to tape the entire bag onto a table or tray for playing. 

For Hazel who's 2 1/2, I made the bag and let her play with it at the table.

Preschool aged and older can assemble or help assemble and play.

This sensory activity is great for touching and listening (the sound of the gel moving in the bag or the bag crinkling). You can also count the number of different sequins, colors of sequins or buttons. We also identified the shapes of the sequins as well.

These bags are great for a pink themed party or activity too! The sparkly confetti and glitter in the bags is always a hit.

* As always, use constant supervision with the younger kiddos. These bags can break open if handled too roughly and we want to prevent any of the contents from going in their mouth. *
