Have you heard of sensory bottles? I hadn’t heard of them until I stumbled upon For the Love of Learning blog. Deborah has some neat ideas for little ones, including an array of sensory bottles. You should check out her blog!
We decided to make our own version of a sensory bottle. Here’s what we used:
*Voss water bottles (found at TJMaxx for $1.79 each…the water tastes really good, too!)
This was a fun activity! Thank you Deborah for the inspiration!! What I loved about the sensory bottle was that Troy and Wes were discovering on their own. They were finding out how glitter felt, seeing how long it took for the bead to drop to the bottom, seeing if a few other objects they randomly put in would float or sink, and had fun rolling it and shaking it. We will be trying this out again with different materials soon!
