Valentine’s sensory play
If you’re looking for some fun Valentine’s sensory play to add to your sensory routine, I’ve got a round-up here of several great choices and one of my own. From goop and guck to water, play time, crafts, activities, and things for the littlest littles, I’ve got 24 options sorted out for you here!
Valentine heart bags for Valentine’s Sensory Play
My Valentine heart bags are an easy and clean (halleluiah!) way to get some sensory play in. Swishing around the hearts inside shaving cream provides both tactile and visual stimulation! If you have anything coming up where you need to keep a little someone occupied, this may be a good item to make just ahead of time to bring with you!

Easy to assemble
I bought foam squares at dollar tree, and used shaving cream, food dye, Ziploc bags, and shipping tape already on-hand at home! Have your kids help with cutting out hearts (great fine motor skills practice) or you can cut them yourself while you relax with your “must-see tv”… 😉
Quick thing to note- The video shows what it will turn out like, and has a few extra tips for you!
Throw everything in, add some glitter if you have a glitter lover, and seal the edges with tape! I sealed the sides and the top, just in case! Adding in fuzzy pom pom balls or rick-rack would add more fun texture as well, but I’d steer clear of beads of sequins as they may cause punctures in a Ziploc.
