When Irish eyes are smiling….we make sensory bags with gold glitter!
I love what a sensory bag does for littles-the discovery, the sensation, the fun!
I love what a sensory bag does for a Mama-ten to twenty minutes of entertainment, a chance to talk about senses and colors and oh so much more, the inexpensiveness of it and oh yes it takes like three minutes to make.
Gallon Ziploc bag-the real deal so it won’t break
duct tape if you don’t trust your little from ripping the top open-I’m eying you boy moms.
green food coloring
a small St. Paddy’s day trinket-we used gold coins.
All of this can be found at your local Dollar Store as mentioned in my previous post.
Add supplies one by one in the bag. I did not mix anything up because I wanted Row to do that once the bag was closed. I simply dumped everything in and sealed.
And let them go! I loved the look on her face as the clear gel turned completely green. We talked about colors, shapes, and the sense of touch. A great extension for older kiddos-btw they love this stuff too. List words that start with “G”, describe attributes of the sensory bag.
Easy, fun, and lasts!!!!!
Are you doing any fun activities for St. Patrick’s Day? I used to make rainbow layer cakes in college-that was always cool!
