Sensory Party in a Bag


Sensory play doesn't have to be complicated or messy to be fun! This sensory party in a bag is the perfect way to engage little hands without a mess, or a lot of complicated supplies.

We love sensory play! When Rolfie was a little boy we discovered the world of sensory bins and have never looked back.

I used to think that sensory play had to be complicated to be fun. After about 7 years of making bins and finding way to engage the senses via play, I realized that sometimes less is more.

This sensory party in a bag is a great example. Sometimes when the kids are overwhelmed by their emotions I like to pull out some basic supplies and create an invitation to unwind.  Summer break can be rough, especially if you are stuck with your sibling all day long. After a day of arguing, I surveyed my craft cabinet and pulled out some simple supplies to create this easy sensory bag. It gave both kids a chance to take a break from each other and get their selves together.


Supplies:
Baby oil gel
A zipper seal bag
Dyed rice
Confetti


Directions:
Pour about 2 tablespoons of baby oil gel into a zipper seal bag.



Add a handful of dyed rice to the bag.
Add some confetti.
Seal.
*If your child has "rough hands" you might wish to reinforce the bag with duct tape along all 4 sides to keep it mess free.*
Invite your child to squish the bag and take a few moments to enjoy the cool sensation of the gel in the bag with the texture of the rice, as well as the visual appeal of the sensory party in a bag.
