Glowing Sensory Bag Play

Yesterday I shared some of the sensory bags I recently made for Rosie and Jewel.  Today, I am sharing a fun twist to the sensory bag concept with glowing sensory bags.

SO FUN for kids & all the mess is contained!


I made a variety of glowing sensory bags.  To make this Creepy Crawly Squish Bag, I filled a ziplock bag with clear hair gel that I purchased from The Dollar Tree, and added a touch of regualar glowing water.  You only need a little bit of glow water to make the whole bag glow intensely!  Note- you could make a variety of colored glowing bags this way using rainbow glow water too!

After I mixed the glow water into the hair gel, I added googly eyes in varying sizes and glowing spiders which I purchased at Michaels craft store for $1.

Then, just secure the end of the ziplock bag with packaging tape to ensure all the mess stays inside!


This was definitely Rosie's favorite glowing sensory bag!

Sensory bags are a great way to explore color mixing so I made a Glowing Color Mixing Sensory Bag using blue and yellow fluorescent paint.  You could also use glow in the dark paint.  They make a variety of colors.

As the bag was squished, the blue and yellow paint mixed together to make green.

I loved how you could see the blue and yellow combining right before your eyes!  Paint is a whole lot of fun to squish in a bag too! Try it and you might find it hard to put down!


The girls loved the Soapy Sparkle Sensory Bag we made so much I wanted to make a glowing version. To do that, I filled a ziplock bag with one bottle of dish soap which I purchased at The Dollar Tree.  Then, to make it glow, I added specks of varying glow in the dark paint colors.  I also added glitter and a few pom poms.

This bag was so fun and colorful!


The more it was handled, the more soapy rainbow bubbles would form!

Both girls have had a blast with these sensory bags, and I have had so much fun making them!
