Fall Sensory Bag Activity


  • Clear hair gel
  • Gallon-size freezer bag
  • An assortment of small objects (nothing sharp), such as:
    • Beads
    • Leaves (real or fake)
    • Dry beans
    • Sequins
    • Fake berries
    • Craft pumpkins
  • Red, orange or yellow food coloring (optional)
  • Packing tape


  1. Fill a freezer bag with clear hair gel — between 1/4 and 2/3 of the bag.
  2. If you’re using food coloring, add it in and then seal the bag. Squish the bag to mix the colors.
  3. Add in your small objects.
  4. Seal the bag making sure all of the air is out.
  5. Use packing tape to secure the seal at the top of the bag. Then let your little ones poke and squish to their heart’s delight!
