Today we are playing with Valentine’s themed sensory bag! Chasing hearts sensory bag works great for fine motor practice. We loved doing sensory play serial throughout January and experimenting with new things.
Toddler enjoyed many new textures and experiences and I have witnessed how much she is now open to new things, after only a few weeks of active play! Believe it or not, she’s even more open to new flavours and foods and we are slowly getting her to stop being such a picky eater! So, it’s a win-win!
How to Make Heart Sensory Bag?
Materals we used:
- zip-lock bag
- heart shaped sequins
- red bathing gel
Steps to make sensory bag:
- Use marker to draw 2 hearts on the zip-lock bag.
- Put heart sequins and small amount of bathing gel inside the bag.
- Seal the bag.
My older daughter helped me to put this sensory bag together and she was impressed with a cooling sense from a bathing gel.
I asked the toddler to try and push heart shaped sequins around until they would reach one of the heart outlines drawn on the bag.
She had fun trying to chase them around! And older daughter wanted to steal the game! So I ended making another one!
We might end up creating several other sensory bags at the later time and see what else we could use as fillers!
