Painting Sensory Bag

This sensory bag is a no-mess way for the kids to do some painting. They can mix the colours by just moving and pushing their fingers over the bag.

Skill Level

Beginner. Adult supervision needed.

Time to Make

15 minutes

Adult Supervision Needed


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. Squeeze some blue paint into the left hand side of the bag.
  3. Squeeze some yellow paint into the centre of the bag, making sure it doesn't mix with the blue paint.
  4. Add some red paint into the right hand side of the bag.
  5. Do up the zip, then spread the paint out using your hand.
  6. Add white tape to the edges of the bag to prevent the paint from leaking.

Top Tip

Don't add too much paint as once the bag is flattened it spreads quite far.
