When I was in the fifth grade, I was obsessed with unicorns. I had unicorn stickers, posters, erasers, and even a unicorn snow globe. I remember a lot of girls in my class liking unicorns at the time. You can imagine that I found it amusing when my daughters started to like unicorns themselves right about grade five!
I decided of course to embrace all the unicorn madness and made them this unicorn sensory bag. Being a mom of four boys, it’s always extra fun for me when I get to make something girly! I threw in some glitter and gems and went with a pink and purple theme. My girls were pretty happy with their unicorn sensory activity.
Make a Unicorn Sensory Bag
- resealable plastic bag
- clear hand sanitizer
- pink or silver glitter
- pink, purple and silver gems and rhinestones
- small pink and purple plastic unicorns
- optional: duct tape
Fill the resealable bag about half full of hand sanitizer. Drop in the gems and plastic unicorns and add the glitter. Remove excess air from the bag and seal.
Sensory bags are notorious for leaking, so you may want to fold duct tape over all the sides. You can find fun rainbow duct tape that would go really well with the unicorn theme. You will also want to use the duct tape to seal it closed if younger children will be using it so that they don’t open it and dump the contents. Just like with all sensory activities, adult supervision is recommended.
