Oil and Water Sensory Bag

These are much better in person. I am going to start off by saying that. I use baby oil when making these because it is clear and you aren’t using much.

Materials Needed:
resealable baggies
clear packing tape or duct tape
Oil ( I like baby oil but any oil works)
Food Coloring or liquid watercolors

1. Add Water and baby oil to the baggie just a few tablespoons you don’t want the baggie too full. I usually fill the baggie about 1/3 full
2. Add coloring or color your water first
3. Fold the baggies over and push out all the air before you seal it.
4. Seal baggie with tape on the top. I like to fold over the ziploc seal part and tape that down.
5. Place the now taped and sealed baggie upside down inside another baggie.
6. Seal this baggie on all edges with clear packing tape. Trim the edges when you are done to remove excess tape.

  1. Hey! I was wondering so you add food colouring to the oil as well or only one color to the water? I love this idea! Thank you!
