Fingers love to explore what is inside and move them around. It can calm an Alzheimer’s patient or give sensory feedback to a small child. You can also place a variety of small items inside such as foam letters, glitter, fuzz balls, marbles, spangles, plastic stickers, buttons, and apple seeds.
SUPPLIES: Duck Tape (to secure the opening of the bag), hair gel, a backing board (cutting board or cardboard), and items of interest.
OPTIONS: You can tape the sensory bag to a lightweight cutting board (as shown) or desk. We used a page protector, but you can also use a zip lock bag, just make sure it is secured so the gel does not ooze out.
NOTE: Do not use sharps near your Gel Sensory Bags as clients may poke a hole into it.
