Jackie from Ready.Set.Read! emailed me this fabulous idea that her baby loves and I couldn’t wait to try it!
To make a sensory water bag, simply fill up a ziplock with little items and water. I used a lid, beads, pieces of straws, a toy lizard, foam letter stickers, and pom poms. Then, tape off all sides to make sure it doesn’t leak. I used packaging tape. If you have a food sealer, use that.
The sensory water bag is great for visual tracking during tummy time or even to experiment with once they learn to sit up. It’s also a neat spin on the I-Spy Bottle for toddlers and preschoolers.
N loved squashing everything around and it kept her attention. The bag was just heavy enough that she couldn’t pick it up and put it in her mouth, but it didn’t stop her from trying of course.
