I’ve been on a recent kick of making sensory bags for Veronika, a great way to enable my little imp to play with messy materials that might otherwise end up in her mouth. Safely inside a plastic bag, even the messiest items are a go!
Normally for a ten-month-old I’d whip up homemade play dough for added security, but since it was going in the bag, I used the store-bought kind.
I added a few craft beads in fun flower shapes that she would be able to squish into the play dough. Now it was simply a matter of sealing and watching her squish away!
Veronika loved grabbing at the bag.
I showed her how to squish the hard beads into the soft dough, talking about texture as we played. The contrast seemed to really interest her.
I felt comfortable leaving this one around for her to play with since there was no liquid to spill, even in case of a slight tear.
A fantastic way to keep her busy, in sum!
