When my kids were younger, I was looking for ways to help them engage with the world around them in a fun, hands-on way. Sensory activities were a favorite way for them to do that. Sensory bags are a wonderful mess-free sensory activity where all of the fun happens in a bag. This makes it safe for babies and toddlers (with supervision of course). I am sharing a collection of some of favorite easy Sensory Bags for Babies and Toddlers. These will take you no time to put together and they will delight and amaze your child. If you are looking for more ways to have sensory fun with your little one, check out all of our sensory activities.
