How to make an easy “I spy” bag with your vacuum sealer. This is much easier than sewing a bag or worrying about a zipping bag opening up.

I was in charge of our MOPS crafts last year and wanted to make little “I spy” bags one week. I decided that using a vacuum sealer would be an effective way to make these and it worked really well. I also love the textures of the vacuum sealer bags I use… it’s rough on one side and smooth on the other. Super sensory friendly.

Seal three of the four sides. Insert your items (beads, seashells, etc).
Add your sand. Don’t overfill it. You want there to be plenty of room to squish the sand and items around.
Seal. Note: You DO NOT use the vacuum part of the sealing process. You just want to seal the bag.
And you’re done! It made a quick craft for my moms’ group which was perfect. And it’s functional to keep the kids entertained on trips to the doctor’s office or in the car. Small enough to slip in your bag. Good stuff!
