It's cheap, easy to make, and kids love them!
Why are they called sensory bottles? The contents of the bottles stimulate your child's senses. A bottle with rice and beads makes different sounds and stimulates auditory senses. A bottle with glitter or a "seek and find" bottle allows your child to use their visual senses.
You can put practically anything in theses bottles and it will be successful.
I recently made some of my own sensory bottles.
|Made with water and baby oil. Added beads, pom-poms, glitter.|
|Coffee with beads; popcorn; cocoa puffs.|
|Aqua beads; sand with seashells.|
Your kids will love them!
