WE USED GLITTER! I prefer "adventurous" instead of "crazy" ahaha
A couple of months ago I saw these Season Sensory/Discovery Bottles on another blog. I loved the idea and I just had to do something like this with Noël. Of course when I typed "sensory bottle" into Pinterest an endless list of DIY bottle ideas appeared. I still love the seasons discovery bottles, but I am going to save that idea for a later time.
I'm calling this post Take 1. Today we kept it simple with shiny glitter and a few streamers.
FIRST TRY- bottle one
Noël is pretty good about not putting things into her mouth. I would also say she is on the neater side, so I decided to be adventurous and let her use glitter. I know the use of glitter can be frowned upon with young ones, but looking back now I do not regret it. She did a great job. We did a thorough wipe down and clean up after, so I would say overall this was pretty successful. If you are a little more hesitant about your young one, beads or legos work nicely. I also think adding a few streamers showed some extra movement inside.
Materials: Voss bottles (suggested, but any water bottle will do), clear glue (glitter glue), warm water, chopstick, superglue
Your choice materials: beads, legos, buttons, rice, glitter, streamers, rocks, waterbeads, sand, etc.
1. Fill 1/3rd bottle with warm water
2.Add 1/4th of glue bottle to warm water, stir with chopstick
3.Add material (we used different colored glitter and gold streamers)
4.Fill the rest of bottle with warm water
5.Super glue lid shut
I told Noël B the water was hot, so be careful. She proceeded to blow into the bottle to cool it down (:
What do you think? There are so many more sensory bottles ideas. I'm deciding if we should do color focus bottles or an ispy next.
