Circles & Gems Sensory Bag

The coloured drops move and break apart when you touch them in this fun sensory bag. This effect is created as the colouring and the oil don’t mix together, making it a great science project too.

How to Make

  1. If you want to remove the label/text from the front of the bag, pour a little nail varnish remover onto a cotton pad and simply rub it off.
  2. Carefully pour some baby oil into the clear bag. Be careful not to add too much, you will only need a small amount.
  3. Choose a colour of food colouring and add some drops into the bag. They will form circles when they mix with the baby oil.
  4. If you want you can add other colours of food colouring, however after time the colours will mix together.
  5. Add some acrylic gems into the bag, then pull across the zip.
  6. Add white tape to the edges of the bag.

Top Tip

You can add more than one colour of food colouring, however after time the colours will mix together.
