Advanced Squishy Bag
This is a great activity for older children with better dexterity than a 2 year old. My son helped me make it, but he didn't really play with it. I have used it with students in the past and just wanted to share it with all of you.
You don't need a light table for this activity - you can just add items to the bag that accomplish the goal you are looking to attain. I used the light table - because its awesome! LOL Its pretty multisensory, and for one of my former students it was very calming - hence a great teaching tool for him.
You place objects in the bag and have the child push the matching objects together. Here are some ways you can use it:
THINGS YOU NEED
Clear Hair Gel
Quart size Ziploc bag
I used translucent letters and shapes that have the corresponding beginning sound
Hair Gel (dollar store)
My 2 year old helped me make the bag.
Adding the objects to the bag
Objects in bag and on light panel
All matched up
