Packing Peanut Sensory Bag

Materials Needed:
Hair gel or thick shampoo (I prefer hair gel you can get it at the $1 Store by the tub) purchase clear or any color you like
Food Coloring or liquid watercolors (you can make this baggie any color you like)
Glitter (optional)
Packing Peanuts

1. Add hair gel 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 packing peanuts, coloring and glitter.
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.

The baggie above is 2 years old and played with daily by a class full of children. These baggies really hold up!
