There are lots of ways to engage babies with homemade toys. I love making sensory bags for babies from materials at home like zip lock bags, hair gel, mini erasers, and even laminating pouches. Find some super great benefits of sensory bags for babies too.
Sensory ideas for kids of all ages are so important and not only because of the benefits of learning, but also due to many other benefits they will get just from interacting with sensory toys.
That’s right my friends, you can make DIY sensory bags for babies using laminating pouches.
They are soo easy to create too. I will write up a short tutorial below so you could make these.
The best part about them is that you can fill them with practically anything you wish and the great will be no leakage. They are much more sturdy than the zip lock bag which can easily burst.
Sensory laminating pouches
The best part about these pouches is that they’re very safe for babies and Toddlers. But of course, they would still need to be supervised when using them for play.
What you will need is some good sturdy amazon laminating pouches.

Can you iron laminating pouches?

You would just seal the laminating pouch on the sides and the bottom, fill in with hair gel or oil and water, add your pieces then seal it back up again.
