For those of you with a pint-sized family member at home, you may have heard of the latest baby toy trend — sensory bags.
Children (and adults, for that matter) learn best when they engage the senses. This is why the smell of a campfire will bring you back to a summer memory, or we’re able to enact all the dance moves from “Thriller” when the Michael Jackson hit song comes on the radio. And this concept starts when we are just little babies.
By exposing our little ones to different textures, colors, or sounds, we are also helping them develop their cognitive skills. Which is why sensory bags are the greatest thing to hit the baby circuit: they’re super easy to make and provide hours of mess-free play.
Check out these 13 sensory bag DIYs to make for your baby:
