Sensory Bags and Sitting Practice

Welcome back to the next instalment of the Playful Baby Challenge. This month we have been playing with light.

We have had so much fun with this theme. Jen and I have been using our trusty light table as well as enjoying the sunlight bouncing off of my necklace, making a beautiful rainbow pattern on the ceiling and our favourite activity this month, sensory bags on the window.

I made two new sensory bags, one contained buttons and the second contained small sea shells. Jen was far more interested in the buttons. I put the buttons and shells in clear sealable bags and added clear shower gel. I sealed the bags and used glitter tape to the edges for extra security (and it looked pretty)

I chose this activity as Jen is now able to sit independently but is still a little wobbly.

The sunlight shining through the bags made them look very inviting and Jen wasted no time at all getting stuck in.

Jen enjoyed using both hands to squish the bag with a look of intrigue on her face (probably wondering what it tastes like).

The resources used for this activity were all purchased at Poundland making it an extremely affordable activity and one that we will repeat again and again. This is also very versatile as many different objects can be added and it also works very well on the light table for tummy time. 

This activity has been very much loved by Jen. We will be bringing this out again and again and maybe try moving them further up the window when she is ready to stand.
