DIY Sensory Bottles
My little one is super curious right now. It’s amazing how overnight he went from being a little baby that was completely focused on mommy, to a toddler that is up walking and exploring everywhere. He is investigating the details of everything he can get his hands on. He loves tiny objects, which scares me to death of course. I wanted to figure out a safe way to inspect small objects and it to be fun too. I’ve been thinking about various types of sensory play that would be great to explore with him. Sensory Bottles seemed like a great place to start before we moved into the world of sensory bins where the small objects are more manipulative.
These DIY sensory bottles are perfect for toddlers, they can be themed or color specific and allow little ones to safely learn about new shapes, colors and objects. For this bottle I decided to go with a ocean them.
Here is what you will need to get started on your DIY Ocean themed Sensory Bottles.
Plastic bottles in a size you prefer- rinsed well
After I was finished adding objects I filled the bottle as close to the top as possible with water. I would have loved to have added glitter to the bottle, but honestly the idea of even bringing glitter into my house has me stressing out.
I used Liquid Fusion waterproof adhesive to seal the cap. I placed a small amount around the inside ring of the cap and screwed it on. Allow it to dry completely before playing with the sensory bottles.
