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.
A DIY sensory bottle is perfect for toddlers, they can be themed or color specific and allow little ones to safely learn about new shapes, colors and objects.
We saved two plastic bottles and cleaned them well (one was from tea). Last week we picked up some fun goodies at the craft store. I decided a ocean themed sensory bottle would be fun, so I included a few tiny sea creatures I found in the scrap booking section of the store.
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.
