Easy Alphabet Sensory Bags for Toddlers and Preschool
Sensory bags are the coolest thing ever!
They are very easy to make (seriously!), you can theme them however you’d like and they work for a differentiated set of ages.
This specific one, I wanted to tailor it to learning letters and the alphabet!
Both my girls (different ages) enjoyed this sensory bag and learned in their very own way!
For example, my oldest pointed out the letters and talked about their letter sounds and my youngest elaborated more on the colors!
I’ll be going more into detail on how I put this simple sensory bag together and how you can too!

How to make a sensory bag
There are many different ways to make a sensory bag.
You can use items such as:
Water (like we did this time around.)
Gel and food coloring
Pencil Poke bag
Themed sensory bags (red and green pom poms for Christmas)
Maze sensory bags
Sensory bag handwriting practice
Goo sensory bags
Sensory bags with cornstarch
So, many fun ways to make a sensory bag!
This time around we made alphabet bags that incorporated our foam letters. 🙂
Sensory letter bags are loads of fun and a great way to learn through play!
My girls loved squishing the bag around and talking about letters and numbers.
I’ve also heard that if you have a little one who likes biting their foam letters and leaving marks on them, that this can be a great way to omit that by adding them into a fun sensory bag for learning through play.

Sensory bags for babies
Not only will these bags work for toddlers and preschoolers.
They will also work as a fun bag to squish around for babies.
Use duct tape to keep the bag extra secure on the floor and watch as your baby squishes the bag around.
You can double bag the other bag for extra security and be sure to use very little water so it doesn’t plop open.
Alphabet theme preschool
Sensory bag activities in a preschool can be so much fun for learning!
Add your favorite alphabet letter magnets into the bag and then use a magnetic wand to fish for letters.
This is a great activity for a fun alphabet lesson plan for preschool.
Another fun idea is to discuss letters each week and incorporate a fun letter sensory bag for those weeks.
Learning about letters is really fun and without actually using only worksheets you can make learning fun by adding a fun sensory bag into the mix.
