This activity is a good and simple sensory activity for children of all ages to explore.
You will need:
- Re-sealable food bags
- Tin of beans
- Tin of spaghetti
- Tinned tomatoes
- Shaving foam (more suitable for older children)
- Angel delight
- Tin of sweetcorn
Open the tins and empty the contents into a re-sealable food bag, press out the air and seal the bag, ensuring there are no leaks. Next spray some shaving foam into a bag, again sealing it and ensuring it does not leak.
Make up the angel delight and set the jelly and also place them into their own food bags. Give the bags to the children to explore, see what the contents look and feel like and how they move within the bags. This is a nice way for children to explore messy play activities without getting messy, which can also benefit children who do not have the confidence to participate in messy play activities.
