Easy nature sensory bags

Easy Nature Sensory Bag

Today we have made these nature sensory bags which are a great way of introducing your child to nature while being a great sensory experience too! Best of all, you don’t have to worry about little ones putting the items in their mouths. These are great to make as they:

– Are a great sensory experience

– Provide an opportunity to name the different objects

– Are mess-free and no risk of choking on the small items

– Help develop hand-eye co-ordination and fine motor skills

To make these nature sensory bags you’ll need the following:

– Zip lock bag

– Cello tape

– Various nature items such as grass, flowers, stones, leaves etc.

Here’s how you make it:

First collect your nature items. If you have a garden you can collect various items from there or otherwise why not go on a nature walk with your child and find some objects together. Get a zip-lock bag and fill it about a third full with water.



Add in all your items (I’ve used grass, flowers and leaves for this one) Close the bag making sure not too much air is inside For extra security tape it up at the top to prevent any spillages.


Tape it to the table. You’re now ready to play!
