Sensory bottles

Sensory bottles

Description:

You can create some amazing sensory bottles utilising any cleaned and emptied plastic bottles or jars, filling them with a variety of different objects from around the home. As your child turns the bottles over in their hands to see the items moving around they are learning about how their actions cause a reaction inside and how to grasp objects and transfer them from one hand to another. These are important foundational skills that your child will need so they can do things such as feed themselves later on.

Adding water to the bottles will allow children to watch items float. However, you can also create dry bottles which will provide a different sound. Be sure to glue and seal the lid tight to ensure your little on does not get it open.
