Squishy Sky Sensory Bag

(This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure policy.)

This squishy sky sensory bag is simple to make and you only need a few materials. Depending on the age of your child, they can even help cut out the clouds to make the sensory bag.

Sky sensory bag is perfect for little explorers.Materials needed:

Using scissors, cut some cloud shapes out of the white foam sheet. If you are having your child help you with this step, you can lightly sketch the outline of a cloud with pencil and have them cut along the outline.

Place the foam clouds inside a resealable bag. Add a few items from the In the Sky toob and squeeze some blue hair gel or body wash into the bag. Remove excess air from the bag and seal.

I prefer to use a good quality freezer bag rather than a sandwich bag for sensory bags because they are more durable and I prefer the size as well.

If you’re using these sky sensory bags with younger children, you can secure the opening of the bag by folding strong clear packing tape or duct tape over the top of the bag. You can also do this to all sides of the bag for extra durability.

I used the same In the Sky toob to make a Sky Sensory Bottle and a Sky Sensory Bin. All of these were perfect during our Flight Unit in homeschooling.

Slow Cooker Spinach and Sausage Soup

(This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure policy.)

This freezer to crock pot soup is nice and hearty, making it perfect for cold days. I also like that it is easy to adapt this spinach and sausage soup according to your preferences.

Spinach and Sausage Crock Pot soup freezer mealSpinach and Sausage Soup Recipe:

1 lb. ground Italian sausage (I prefer the spicy variety*)
24 oz. jar pasta sauce
19 oz. can white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
10 oz. chopped spinach, fresh or frozen
4 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups chicken broth

1 cup small pasta shells

Brown the ground sausage in a skillet. *If you can handle spicier food, I strongly suggest you use the spicy Italian sausage as it is so much tastier in this recipe.

Once the sausage has cooled, add it to a large resealable freezer bag. Pour in the pasta sauce, the drained white kidney beans, chopped spinach, chopped carrots, diced onion, minced garlic, and chicken broth. Remove excess air and seal.

Put the raw pasta in a medium resealable bag. Staple the bags together and freeze.

On cooking day, take the bag out of the freezer and thaw. Separate the bags and add the large bag to a slow cooker. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Add the pasta in the last 20 minutes.

You can change up this recipe by using different types of jarred pasta sauce and determining which is your favourite flavour combination. I prefer to use fresh spinach but you can try it with either and see what your preference is.

Pretty Princess Sensory Bottle

(This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure policy.)

This pretty princess sensory bottle was a big hit with my two youngest daughters. They loved the beautiful colours and shapes of course, but they also liked the sound. The beads from the plastic mardi gras necklace make a tinkling sound on their way down.

Little girls will love this pretty princess sensory bottle.My girls liked listening to the beads and watching the gems and confetti sink down. They also liked how pretty this sensory bottle was.

Materials needed:

Place the mardi gras beads, pink hearts, gems, and flower and butterfly shaped confetti in an empty water bottle and then fill it with water. Replace the lid. You can secure the lid with a hot glue gun if you are going to be using this princess sensory bottle with little ones. Adult supervision should of course be used with any sensory activity.

If you want to, you can add some pink or purple glitter before you add the water and give the sensory bottle a good shake.
