Gelatin and Water Sensory Baby Play

Are you looking for simple sensory activities to do with your baby? Before I had my son, I didn’t really think there were many options {I never did any sensory activities with E until she was 2!}, but turns out, they can do a ton, even before they can sit up.

Today’s Gelatin and Water Sensory Baby Play was done when N was already a few months older and with him choosing to sit up, but we did several activities before he was ever able to sit up. You can find them all on my baby play page. One of my favorites was this Baby Play with Christmas Lights activity.


Want something simple and fun for baby to do? This Gelatin and Water Sensory Baby Play activity is totally taste-safe and a great chance to explore an unusual material.

(N was 10 months old.)

This activity was an extension of N’s Baby Play with Gelatin earlier the same day. I love it when we can use the same materials for several different activities or when we just have to add a little something and make it all new and different and exciting ūüôā
