We have been working with my little one (she is 2 1/2) on learning her colors. We have done a few projects lately that help her with colors like our Color Mixing Experiment. I have been wanting to do a sensory bag with her for a while and since my oldest was visiting grandma for the week and I thought it would be a great time to do one with her.
In the past we have done a few sensory things and she has always loved them, just check out our sensory page to see them all! But we have never done a bag and I always thought they were neat. But since we are working on colors I thought I would focus this one more on colors too.
The bag is pretty easy to make, to start you just need a bottle of hair gel. Which you can get at the dollar store so you don’t have to spend a fortune on it. Then you just add what ever you want to the bag for their sensory play. In this one I added some pom poms and buttons in different colors and then asked her to find me different colors (like I asked if she could show me something red). And she would show me the colors she knew and then mush and squish the bag some more.
