Over the last 4 years, particularly when my daughter was younger we often enjoyed mess free sensory activities. I started off with mess free painting and sensory bags as not only were items contained but my daughter suffered with eczema. I had to be very careful about what I exposed her skin to. She began reluctant to explore hands on so these opportunities offered a stepping stone for her. She now can't get enough and there isn't a day that passes where shes not keen to get her hands stuck in and get messy. Sometimes children need to be eased into getting used to having their hands messy.
Now we have babies in our household again I was keen to make some more sensory bags for the boys to explore whilst enjoying tummy time. We made a range of sensory bags which included these mess free - colour mixing paint bags. The boys enjoyed watching the paint move around in the bag and seemed fascinated with the sensation. Through the laminating pouch you could feel how cool and squidgy the paint was. Again the boys sadly suffer with eczema so I am again being cautious of what I expose their skin to.
