Sensory balloons are great fun to make and good for your child too!

It's Craft Week in Family Friendly Summers and to mark it we have this easy guide to making sensory balloons at home.

Sensory balloons are a great way for your child to explore the sense of touch. These little guys are not only fun to play with but they are also great for building up fine motor skills. Draw some faces on these balloons to make them even cuter!

Here's everything you need to know to make sensory balloons.

What you will need:

  • 3 balloons
  • Sugar
  • Quinoa
  • Rice

How to Make Sensory Balloons for Children:

  1. Get your ingredients all set out and ready to go.

    You will be filling up each balloon with a different ingredient.

  2. Fill balloons

    Start filling the balloons - the first balloon with rice, the second with sugar, and the third with quinoa.

  3. Tie each balloon securely once filled.

    The usual balloon trying tricks apply here - best advice is to loop it around your finger and make the knot that way.

  4. And you're done!

    Three sensory balloons are perfect for toddlers - as we said, you can draw some faces on them too for added cuteness.

Hopefully your toddler has as much fun with these balloons as you did making them!
