Easter sensory bag

Easter sensory bag

This is an Easter sensory bag that I put together for F. I’ve seen a lot of sensory or discovery bags as suggested ideas for sensory play for babies.

Since F is still at the stage where everything goes in the mouth, these seem like the ideal way to play with inedible messy substances and small objects.

For this Easter sensory bag, I simply added a tub of hair gel (I bought supermarket own basics brand for about 50p) into a zip lock freezer bag and added a small packet of bunny table confetti (pack of 4 from a £1 shop).

In order to ensure the bag did not leak (or Poppet didn’t figure out how the zip worked), I sealed the top with duct tape. As an extra safety measure (as F has 6 teeth so she could potentially burst the bag if she chewed on it) I taped the bag down to her high chair tray.

F prodded and poked the bag for a little bit and seemed to enjoy the activity. I think she is still a little young for this yet. It didn’t take long for her to start trying to bite the bag and peel it off the high chair. Even so, I have saved the bag and give it her to play with, supervised, for short periods every so often. I think this is a great activity for older babies.
