Step One: Gather materials.
- cotton balls
- pink and blue washable paint
- vegetable/baby oil
- ziplock bags
- duct tape
Step Two: The child begins layering materials inside of a ziplock bag. Cotton balls, a bit of oil, a bit of water, glitter, and some paint.
Step Three: They continue this process of layering over and over again, (building about 6 layers).
Step Four: As the bag starts to fill with cotton balls, the water and oil will water them down making more room for more layers. After a couple of layers, the child can seal the bag and mix some of the materials together.
Step Five: Once the bag is completely full, the child can squeeze all the air out before sealing.
Step Six: Play. This space sensory bag is like a galaxy or a nebula that children can hold in their hands and squish.
