Dollar Store Sensory Bag

I love the dollar store.  I can go on a shopping spree and only spend $20!  I’ve been pinning so many different dollar store kid fun ideas I figured it was time to actually DO one.  I had originally pinned the idea from this mom: Play At Home Mom.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Biggest bottle of hair gel available
  • Glitter
  • Food coloring or finger paint
  • Sandwich Bags or larger
  • Packing tape
  • Cardboard

Use whatever cardboard you have around the house. 


Cut to the size of the bag.  Leave space for the tape.

Fill bag with gel.  The less gel the better for writing practice. Squirt in some food coloring and glitter.
Tape a border around the baggie to the cardboard.
Cut to fit high chair tray if needed.
Kidster loves it!

What is YOUR favorite kid craft?

  1. What a neat idea! These home-spun toys seem to really fuel a child's creativity. Especially wonderful because as they observe (and later make themselves) you making/assembling the item there are many more subtle lessons being given, like: patience, anticipation, working to achieve something, etc, etc. You make a wonderful mother!
