Do you want an easy and cheap activity to occupy your baby? Do you want your baby to enjoy doing tummy time?
Sensory bags are a great way to help baby through developmental milestones and to help with tummy time. And they’er super easy to make.
- Freezer bags (I like using the gallon ones)
- Tape (Packaging tape or Painters tape work best)
- 1/4 Cup of Oil
- 2 Cups of Water
- Food coloring
- Colorful Straws
- Pom Pom balls (at any craft store)
I like using different textures and colors per bag.
Oil and Water Sensory Bag
In this bag, put two drops of whatever food coloring color you want to the water. Pour in the bag. Then, add the oil. Finally, zip it up and tape down to the floor or highchair for baby to play.
Straw Sensory Bag
Add straws to bag, zip up, and tape down. BOOM! Sensory Bag!
(I told you these were crazy easy.)
I used some left-over paper straws we had from a birthday party. They were fun colors and Beatrice loves them.
Pom Pom Sensory Bag
Lastly, we have the Pom Pom Sensory Bag. Simply add the pom poms to the freezer bag, zip it up, and tape it down.
I feel like I’m cheating at this whole parenting thing sometimes but seriously these are so easy to make and so much fun for baby to play with. Plus they’re super inexpensive. You probably have all these materials around the house.
