Have you heard of sensory bags? They’re a great way to get sensory play to the kiddos with a lot less mess. They’re also great for younger children who are still mouthing things. We’ve done quite a few at home and some in preschool, too! If you’re looking for some engaging sensory bag ideas, check out these fun ideas!
What’s so great about sensory bags?
As I mentioned above, they’re great for little ones who are still putting things in their mouths. In addition to that, sensory bags can encourage fine motor development and the sense of touch. They can be adapted to work on art, literacy, math, and more.
