So, how do you make a ziplock sensory bag? 


Here are the steps I took to create these simple set of ocean themed sensory bags: 

  • Open up your zip lock bag. 

  • Then, insert foam fish shapes into your bag. 

  • In the second bag, add the fish stickers inside of the bag. 

  • Close them both up and add duct tape to keep it extra secure so that the water does not leak out. 

  • Your sensory bags are ready to go!

  • Play and learn with them and enjoy!
