Do-It-Yourself Sensory Bottles

Sue's picture

Create some fun, engaging sensory bottles for your baby or toddler. These are easy to make and let your child explore how different objects move and sound inside the bottles. Your baby or toddler can roll them, bang them, and watch the objects move around. Adding water or corn syrup to some of the bottles will create a different effect.

Below are pictures of the ones that I made. You can use a variety of different materials – just look around your home to see what you have! Just be sure to hot glue the caps on so the materials stay safely inside.

Materials:

  • Empty Water Bottles
  • A variety of materials for the bottles: brightly colored puff balls, rice, beans, popcorn, glitter and water, aluminum foil pieces, buttons
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Water or corn syrup
