Sensory bags are fabulous way for little ones to explore the world around them.  They are cheap to make and easily slipped into a bag to take out to restaurants and places. There are many different ideas that you can do, so for this one I did an under the sea sensory bag.

Make sure that you follow my sensory board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own under the sea sensory bag you will need:

  • A small zip lock bag
  • Shower gel
  • Under water themed toys
  • Craft gems
  • Duck tape

Fill your zip lock bag with shower gel (I used a cheap Disney Princess one from Sainsbury).

Next put in your themed toys and any craft gems.  I used a few rubber ones that I had which are readily available from toy shops like Toys R Us.

Then squeeze out any excess air and close.  Make sure to use some duck tape to secure the top.

I found that quite quickly the shower gel became very bubbly.  Next time I will use hair gel and just add a bit of glitter to make it shimmer.

If you want to remove any logos or writing from the zip lock bag to use some nail polish remover.
