Easy Baby Sensory Toy DIY

I've never thought of making my own toy for Justice since he's already got boxes of new toys and hand-me-downs from friends and family. I thought we have enough toys that he can play with for the next 2 years. But as he becomes more curious about his surroundings, I started to question whether or not the toys he plays with help him develop and grow. I can't help but think that most of them are mindless, noisy or just to keep him busy. So I looked up toys that will be great for his senses. And this water sensory bag shows up. I thought this would be super easy to make myself. And it was! I found most of the supplies at home and from my local dollar store. It also took me 2 minutes and 3 bucks to put together.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Pom Poms in assorted colours
  • Sequins in assorted colours
  • Large zip-lock bag
  • Water
  • Gorilla tape/duct tape

Instructions are very simple. Just dump all the pom poms and sequins (or whatever you want, really) into a large zip-lock bag and fill it with water. Don't overfill it though. Just fill half of the bag with water so there's room for water and the items to float around. It will also less likely to explode when the baby pounds it with their hands. Ain't nobody wants that to happen! Secure the opening with tape. You may want to put it into another zip-lock bag for double security like what Will keeps telling me to do. And that's it! 

This is a stimulation toy for babies. It's fun watching Justice feel the water bag and see his little eyes follow all the shiny colourful items move around as he touches the bag. It's a great way for him to use and explore with his senses.

    1. The Pom poms and sequins stay inside the bag so it’s very safe for the baby
