Ive been looking round to see what crafts I can do with little money and not too complicated. I found a great idea using zip-lock bags or thicker clear sleeves (for files) taped securely with packing tape
But babies under a year love holding and feeling these; you can put in anything you want as long as its blunt. Fill the bag with some hair Gel; baby oil; jelly or anything squishy; (cornflour mixed with water is nice!!)
So that the child can push any object around easily. Use plastic sea creatures and smooth pebbles in blue gel for a Beach theme.
Plastic spiders or insects in green gel for Halloween. Also beads or anything else you can think of that would be fun. Obviously stay with the toddler at all times when using sensory bags. And seal it well!!
Even food would be fun cooked pasta and maybe soft peas, sweet corn or berries for squishing in the bag, its nice to have different colours; but obviously food wont keep for too long!!! Two different colour paints either side of the bag is also good! They can push it round to make a brand new colour!! Magic!!
