November is quickly slipping away, so before it does, I want to share my November sensory bottle! You may recall that I am creating a sensory bottle for my baby for each month this year. Last month was a Halloween theme. This month, I wanted to do something with turkeys, but I could not find any turkey cut-outs for the sensory bottle. I decided to go with fall colors and make a glittery bottle.
I used gold, dark purple, red, and orange beads. I also put in gold glitter, which you can clearly see in the picture above! I bought the button embellishment beads at Hobby Lobby and they were 80% off! I like to put my supplies in Voss water bottles, which I’ve found at TJ Maxx or Walgreens. I think these water bottles are hard to find and they are very pricey on Amazon! I usually get them at Walgreens at 2 for $3.
I simply poured the supplies in my water bottle and shook it up! Oh and I definitely glued the lid on!
Then I placed it in front of my 3 month old to look at. He’s really into following objects with his eyes, so he loved watching the glitter swirl around.
When he is older and can hold objects, he will have fun shaking this bottle!
I’ve already got our December bottle made and can’t wait to share it with you! These sensory bottles are a lot of fun for all my boys and we love adding more to our collection!
How much glitter for you use? The glittered cluster inside the bottle ;(
Angela Thayer says
Oh no! I’m sorry. I’m not sure the amount, since I made this several years ago. Are you using fine glitter? The bigger the glitter, the more likely it is to clump.
I love the idea.you came up with… Im going to have to try this myself
I might be having a moment. … but is there any liquid in these bottles? They look great!
Angela Thayer says
Yes, there is just plain water inside. 🙂
These have been eye opening!!!! I love all the ideas you have come up with – you are very talented and I can’t wait to get started!!! YOu have just refreshed my teaching 🙂
