Sensory bags are such a fun, easy way to keep my kids entertained for an afternoon. So knowing that glitter makes everything more fun, the kids and I recently created our own super sparkly sensory bags. These bags were a huge hit with my kids. And I love that they provide some pretty mess-free fun!
Note: This and other sensory play ideas can be found on my sensory play page.
For this particular activity, I gathered up some quart sized freezer bags, blue hair gel from the dollar store, glitter, and two kinds of beads.
I invited the kids to help squeeze the gel into the bags. They always get such a kick out of getting to do this.
