We've done these before but with gallon bags (click HERE for the "Squishy Glitter Bags" post). We were out of gallon bags and Mercedes was asking to make squishy bags, so we used sandwich size bags instead, which was actually just as fun!
We filled the bags about halfway with liquid...half oil and half water (looking at the regular size squishy bags we made before I think they turned out better because we used more oil than water. It's not an exact science...just add stuff until it looks pretty and feels interesting). Then we added some glitter and a few drops of food coloring.
Both girls loved these!
As always, Mercedes just HAD to find out how this sensory material would feel on her feet!
I always love seeing how these projects progress. We still had a plate of paint from an early project lying on the table. Mercedes thought it would be fun to do a "Squishy Bag Print". It was actually pretty cool!
We kept both the paper and the plate.
