I’ve previously made set of Sensory Bean Bags – Montessori Inspired Baby Toy and Mia love them. Her favourite piece of material (she always pick them first from the shelf). As they already getting a bit old and ripped I’ve made new set of sensory bean bags (this time a little bit different).
Sensory Bean Bags perfect for babies. They are simple open-ended toys that allow babies to experience many different textures, sounds, and colors as they play. Besides stacking, tossing and sensory play, as your baby grows this colorful collection can also be used for educational play such as color recognition, matching, and counting.
I’ve made 5 bean bags with a cotton fabrics in 3 colours red, white and blue with different patterns. Each of the colorful fabrics have been selected for a variety of sensory experiences. To great sensory experience each Sensory Bean Bag is filled with a different natural filling including rice, orzo pasta, garbanzo beans, and lentils. One of the bean bags is also lined with plastic wrap and filled with rice to create a wonderful crinkling sound your baby will enjoy.
Guess don’t need to mention that they are most of the time in Mia’s mouth – perfect for teething. Sensory Bean Bags are so easy to make, most of the materials I’ve got on eBay for less than pound and super fun for babies.
