This fun little sensory bag was a hit with my little learners – and I’m sure it’ll be the same for you! Bunny Noses Sensory Bag Colour Sorting is a great way to engage toddlers and preschoolers with the concept of sorting AND colour recognition.
Make a Super Easy Squishy Bunny Noses Sensory Bag Colour Sorting with Your Kids!
Colour sorting activities for toddlers are a great way to get them to begin to use critical thinking skills. To make your own little squishy bag, you will need:
- 1 Gallon Sized Ziploc bags per person / I used half the gallon sized ziplock bag in this one so you don’t need the large size if you don’t have it.
- Hair gel
- Coloured Pom Poms
- Bunny Noses Printable (below)
- Tape, masking or painter’s
- Recycled cardboard box
Squeeze your hair gel into one Ziploc baggie. Make sure you put enough in there so that when the bag is laying flat, you can easily squish it through. But also not too much. In my gallon sized bag I put 4-5 tablespoons of hair gel.
Make sure you seal the bag really well, you can also double bag it.
I inserted two colours of pom poms into each sensory bag and taped it to hard cardboard (or you can use a recycled cardboard box). this is so it makes the activity easy to carry around.

Once you’re done with that step, print out the bunny noses printable below and then cut it to center it then sticky tape it on the back of the sensory bag.
How do you erase the label on a ziplock bag?
Here’s a handy tip I never knew – I used nail polish remover to get rid of the annoying packaging label on the front or back of the ziplock bag. I never thought it’d work – but it did. Try it! 🙂
Once you’ve sticky taped the printable to the back of the sensory bag, be sure to use painter’s tape to secure it to the cardboard. I used yellow coloured cardboard because I didn’t have an old cardboard box to use. Of all times right?
It’s a great fine motor task as the kids squish the pom poms to place them onto the corresponding ‘bunny noses’.
