Ocean Theme Sensory Bag
After gathering your supplies fill your plastic bag with blue hair gel.
Next, add the sea creatures, shells and the glitter or confetti to the bag.
To finish it up lay the bag flat and gently press the gel out, so it fills the bag. Doing this will push the air out. You want to make sure you get all the air out of the bag and then zip it closed.
If you are worried about the bag leaking, you can add duct tape around the edge of the zippered side. You can find fun patterned duct tape to use now. It would be easy to pick up a blue tape or ocean theme tape to match.
Your children will have so much fun exploring their ocean life sensory bag. They can press and squish around on the ocean animals and shells to explore what’s inside the sensory bag.
