I’m so happy my favorite season is here! Everywhere I look, I see fall! The leaves are starting to change, the mums are out, there are pumpkins galore, and of course pumpkin spice everything! Today I want to share with you our fall sensory bottle we just made. It’s very simple, but it’s perfect for toddlers and preschoolers this fall.

This bottle reminds me of the leaves falling outside right now. It would be a great way to talk about the leaves falling with your child. 🙂
Here’s what I put inside this fall sensory bottle:
- 8 oz. glycerin
- fall glitter (you can use any kind! This one is from Michaels and the link is for similar ones on Amazon.)
- water bottle (we used a Voss plastic water bottle)
To make the bottle, I filled an empty water bottle with 8oz of glycerin and then filled the rest of the bottle with tap water. I used glycerin because it helps the glitter swirl around and fall down slowly. Then I poured in a generous amount of glitter. Lastly, I glued the lid on so my kids can’t open it!
My boys loved looking at the bottle and shaking it! We really love sensory bottles and have a large collection of them!
Here are a few of my favorite fall sensory bottles.

What size VOSS bottle do you use?
How old is the young one you were making these for? Did he/she/they never open and spill the contents?

I make these for my babies up through preschool age. I glue the lid down with a hot glue gun, so they can’t open it. After they realized they couldn’t get it open, they stopped trying. Hope that helps!
