Squishy Bag - A tactile/multisensory approach to pre-writing and writing skills. Things you need - Gallon size Ziploc bag, glitter (optional), food coloring, hair gel (dollar store) I like this better than paint.
To make these really cool sensory bags, all you need is some hair gel, baggies, and food color. I purchased hair gel from the Dollar Store and used food color that comes in tubes to make the bright colors…
Sensory mats - "Goo bags - recipe for goo. I've had it suggested to use an entire bottle of dollar store hair gel, but this is probably just as inexpensive, and you can make whatever VIBRANT colours you want." Letter writing with fingers or Q-tips.
This is neat! Just use solid color spoons and clear spons, and have them match the upper and lower case letters! I bet it would work fine for numbers too!another cheap and simple idea to teach kids their letters!
