Making book-inspired sensory bottles has been such a fun way to explore children’s books with our baby! He will sit and play with the bottle while I’m reading with the other kids. He’ll still here the story – but be playing with the bottle while he does!
How To Make Your Sensory Bottle
- Clear plastic jar from the recycling (clean it first!)
- hot glue or Krazy Glue
- Brown construction paper
- Brown or black marker
We read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, so I wanted to feature cookies in our bottle! All I did was take brown construction paper and draw chocolate chips on them. Then I poked a small hole at the top of each cookie, using a thumbtack, and looped thread through it. I taped the thread to the top of the bottle.
And then put the bottle top back on! You can hot glue or Crazy Glue the lid on to make sure your little one doesn’t unscrew the lid. Once the glue is dry, you’re ready to play!
