My kids have always loved to engage in sensory play. I love to encourage them to play and experiment with different materials, and I love to offer options that are not too detailed. Sensory bags, bins and bottles are a fun way to decompress for my kids.

This sensory bag is great for little hands to squish and explore. Harp loved this bag on a really rough day; it was a perfect outlet for her to take a break from her brother and get herself together. It was easy to make, so I will be keeping this in my rotation for sensory play.
