Directions

  1. To begin this DIY, start out with several clear Ziploc bags, feel free to use different sizes!
  2. Now get as creative as you’d like to create as many different sensory bags for your little one to use. Gather materials of different textures, colors, temperatures, consistencies, and even smells, etc.
  3. Place a variety of these items into the Ziploc bags.
  4. If you are using materials that may spill or fall out of the bag, take the top, fold and secure it with duct tape, then place that bag inside another Ziploc bag and secure all edges with tape.
  5. When Sensory bags are sealed they are ready to use and grow your child’s sensory input and build neural connections!
  6. These bags can be used as is so children can explore them using their hands or feet anywhere in the house, or you can even set up a sensory wall with a few of these bags taped within reach to a wall or door so your little one can engage in sensory play and learning.
  7. While your little one is exploring using their senses, make sure to ask plenty of open-ended questions for them to describe the experience and use descriptive language to build their vocabulary!
