Sensory Bottle

Sensory Bottle

I think it is time to start my youngest daughter doing some crafting.  I know she just turned one, but I think there are some things she can do and they can help with her motor skills.   So the other day I thought we would try to make a Sensory Bottle for her, but of course my oldest then wanted to do it too, what was I thinking just crafting with my youngest?  So two bottles it is!
This is a very easy and simple craft to do with younger children and when done you have a new toy for them to play with.  It is also pretty cheap, and you know I love cheap.
When we first started trying to put the beads in the bottle I did have an issue with my youngest trying to eat them so keep an eye on the little ones is they are still in that everything goes in the mouth faze.  I ended up just giving her a binky so that she already had something in her mouth and would stop trying to eat our project.
This really is a great craft for hand eye coordination.  It was fun to watch her put the bead into the bottle.  The sequins and glitter were too much for her but she really did will with the beads.  My oldest had no trouble doing the whole project by herself.


Empty water bottle
Glue of choice


 Start by adding some beads and sequins to your empty bottle, no need to fill the bottle just a little of everything is great
 Then you can add your glitter, you can use more here and it is okay.
Fill your bottle with water
  Then apply some glue to the lid and close (we used a glue gun but regular Elmer’s should work fine too)
 If you used Elmer’s or craft glue wait for the glue to dry then let the kids play and explore their new toy.


 My oldest lost interest in her bottle after a few minuets.  But my youngest is still playing with them both after a few days.  All that glitter and stuff floating around is so cool and Fun!

    Martin, you are responsible! Many thanks to you and all the other tireless folks (e.g., Lloyd Mazer, Nancy Shack…who else?) who host puzzles for everyone’s benefit. Wow, 9,000? Whoa!


    Sorry to hear about your card – made me laugh that it was before payday though – if it were me they’d get about 50p! And as for the boxes… what can I say – Doesn’t everyone do this??? I am a virgo!


    I feel the same about animal cruelty but can’t adopt the vegan diet.I still eat anything and everything, knowing that I can’t change the conditions the animals are subjected to.I guess certain trade offs have to be made .I don’t think I’d buy a product if it was labeled “Cruelly slaughtered.” I once hit a deer with a car and a guy asked me if he could have it-then he changed his mind when he looked at it.Don’t hate me for eating meat.There are better reasons.

    My sentiments, entirely. Bravo Thirsty Gargoyle! I sent a Letter to his Editor that is (of necessity) shorter than your exhaustive "exegesis" (and I use that word because of the soi-disant biblical nature of the Irish Times!). Slake thy thirst Gargoyle; for thou hast earned it!
