DIY Sturdy Sensory Bags

My kiddos love anything that involves sensory play! However, I have some rough kiddos who can easily destroy the sensory bags made with Ziploc's. I follow an amazing Instagram account called SENteachingideas, and she posted about how she uses laminating pouches for sensory bags. That idea sure got my wheels turning! I ended up making sturdier sensory bags using vacuum sealing pouches... I won't dare call them indestructible, but we've used them for more than 2 weeks at ESY and they've lasted through being hit and bit repeatedly!

Here's a short tutorial how to make them:

1) Gather your supplies:
-Some kind of vacuum sealing machine (I used a FoodSaver vacuum sealer)
-Vacuum sealing bags/ pouches (I used these)
-Liquid fillers
-Hard fillers

2) Fill the bag with your liquid of choice. 

3) Add fillers of your choice.

4) Start vacuuming and sealing!
Now it's time to vacuum seal! I didn't let the FoodSaver vacuum out all of the air (I just stopped it and sealed it right before all of the air was out of the bag). Then I did a second seal for extra reinforcement! ;)
