My son is three years old but this sensory bag would be suitable for younger toddlers and even babies (with some supervision).  To make this sensory bag I used:

  • Dollar store blue shower gel
  • Clear resealable bag (good quality!)
  • Small plastic ocean creatures (from a Safari Ocean Toob)
  • Shells
  • Duct tape

Ocean Sensory BagI started with a gallon size resealable bag as pictured above, but the 12oz bottle of shower gel was nowhere near enough for it, so I transferred it all to a quart size bag. Then I added the creatures and shells, and sealed all the edges with duct tape. In the end I didn’t use the dolphin or the shark as I was worried about the fins bursting the bag!

I love how all the bubbles in the shower gel create a kind of mystic quality.

F had a great time poking and prodding the bag, shouting out the names of the items he found hidden amongst the bubbles.Ocean Sensory Bag - mess free discovery fun!


This sensory bag would also look amazing on a light table!
