I like to call them Gloppity Goop cause it sounds way more fun then “hey guys you want to make your own sensory bags?” Don’t know why I never did this before, it’s so easy and mess free. What you need:
Freezer bags (much stronger against all that squeezing and squishing)
Hair Gel (my dollar store only had pre-colored hair gel)
Misc sensory bag items such as beads, jewels, glitter, Pom poms, googly eyes etc – just nothing too sharp that it could poke a hole
I had the kids participate in the making of their bags, even had Lil’ M count his pieces before dropping them in. After you’ve put all your pieces in, push out as much air, then seal with duct or packing tape.
