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. *

Valentine's Day Sensory Bag Idea
- Sandwich size ziploc bag
- 6 tablespoons clear hair gel
- 2 drops food coloring gel
- 1 tablespoon glitter, confetti, sequins, buttons
- Clear packing tape
- Tablespoon measuring spoon
- Take the ziploc bag, then scoop the hair gel inside. Next add the food coloring and glitter, confetti, sequins or buttons.
- Seal the ziploc, making sure all of the air is let out of the bag before sealing.
- Once sealed, cut a piece of packing tape the length of the ziploc. Place the tape across the top of the ziploc, and fold over the top sealing the other side.
- Time to play! Mix the color and sequins inside the sensory bag.
