Squishy sensory bags are perfect for sensory play…without the mess! They’re cheap and easy to make and children love playing with them! They’re perfect for practicing mark making and numbers and letters.
You will need…
1 cup of flour
6 tablespoons of water and food colouring
Zip-lock bags (22cmx22cm)
Small mixing bowl
Place flour into bowl and add food colouring.
Add the water.
Mix until all the ingredients are well blended.
Scoop the flour mixture into the zip-lock bag.
Before fastening the end, place the bag onto a flat surface and gently push out any excess air to avoid bubbles.
Zip the bag closed and ensure there are no holes.
Place sticky tape along the edge to secure the opening.
Now it’s time to get playing!
How about placing the squishy bags onto a light panel/window and use a paint brush to make marks in the bag! Or how about squishing and squeezing the bag?! What happens?!

Today’s story is all about a man Zacchaeus. He was so desperate to see Jesus that he climbed right to the top of a sycamore tree…
Zacchaeus climbed a tree called a sycamore tree. Can you name any other types of trees?! Maybe go out into your garden, or local park, and collect some leaves from the trees. Look at the different leaves you can find and see which type of tree they belong too!
Today’s story is all about Elmer the Elephant! But Elmer was a little bit different…
At first, Elmer was a little bit sad that she was a little different to the other elephants. But…we are all a little bit different too! Some of us are short, some are tall! Some of us have brown hair, some have blonde hair! And it’s ok to be different! In fact…we should celebrate our differences! Just like the elephants do on Elmer Day!
How about creating your own animal like Elmer?! You could create a patchwork worm, a rainbow goat or a colourful dolphin! Share your animal creations with us in the comments below.
Can you name all of the different colours on Elmer?! Let’s sing a song to name all the colours…
