Give kids a fun way to sort colors while getting a little sensory play in with this rainbow disc sensory bag.
We love sensory play. From bins to bags, and even bottles; anyway you present sensory play we are in!
With the kids being out of school for so long I have been really busy coming up with activities to engage them, challenge them, and keep them entertained. We made this easy sensory bag to practice our color sorting and pattern making skills. It is perfect for adding some color to the day.
Hand Sanitizer or Hair Gel
Zipper Seal Bag
Draw a rainbow on a zipper seal sandwich bag with Sharpies.
Add several squirts of hand sanitizer or hair gel (about a tablespoon or two of gel is ideal).
Drop transparent colored counting chips (or bingo markers) in the colors of the rainbow into the bag.
Seal well. If your child has 'rough hands' you might want to reinforce the sides with tape to prevent the sides from busting. (This is a good idea for toddlers, but can be skipped for older kids!)
Invite your child to glide the discs thru the gel and place them on the color they match.
When finished, check the seal to be sure it is closed and store for another day when a quiet activity is needed.
