Zip Lock Bags
1. Take a couple scoops of hair gel/ Glitter packet and add to zip lock bag.
2. After removing excess air from bag, seal bag and clean off excess hair gel. Make sure to dry the bag, and that the hair gel is locked in.
3. Tape the top of the bag, with tape and/or construction paper strip folded over the top about an inch in diameter. Seal bag tight to avoid leaking.
When given a sensory bag, the child will squish, point, and push the solution around exercising their sensory skills.
We used blue hair gel, with purple flowers and plastic butterflies. The next day the solution was a different color. It turned light purple. Everyday the solution changed a little darker. It started to look less like blue, and more like purple. The next day I asked "what changed in the bag?" It was a very pretty project/experiment.
