15 Sensationally Sticky Sensory Play Suggestions

4. Sensory Bags

Fill some ziplock bags with something soft and squishy. Hair gel, paint, set jelly, shaving cream… the possibilities are endless!

You can make them colourful and add trinkets for added texture. Seal them up (you can use additional duct tap to ensure a secure seal) and bub can squish and squeeze to their heart’s content.

Bonus points for this one as it is actually mess-free!

Bigger can be better especailly for little ones, why not take the bags one step further and make them into Sensory Windows by taking a ziplock bag, some good tape and coloured water beads. Filling the sandwich bag with waterbeads pressing out all the air and taping the bag to the window and “voila”.

5. Water Play

Just add H20 for safe, albeit extremely wet, play time.

Simply filling a baking tray with a thin layer of water and adding some balls or other toys to it is enough to capture the attention of little ones. Or why not add some colour to it? By filling plastic containers with water and food colouring you can easily engage their sight sensory and letting them mix and mash the colours can teach them about making other colours and being creative.

6. Coloured Ice play

Add some colouring to water and freeze in ice cube trays or other containers. You can go all-out and create an ice palace or simply dump the tray of ice into a container of water and enjoy bub taking in the colours and the cool-to-the-touch ice.

7. Homemade Baby Guitar

One of my favourites. Use a loaf tin and four or five stretchy rubber bands. Just slide the rubber bands on and you have a guitar that is perfect for bubs!
