Materials you’ll need:

Yes, that’s really all you need!


  1. Wash your water bottle
  2. Remove the labels. (Goo Gone is awesome for getting rid of labels!)
  3. Fill a small amount with rice. Add some of the spring buttons. Repeat until you get close to the top.
  4. Be sure to leave some room in the bottle so the rice and beads can move above the bottle easily.
  5.  Super glue top on. (Some people prefer to glue gun the bottle closed.)
  6. Have fun!

  1. I love these but honestly didn’t really know what to use for the tubes. I know exactly where to buy the Voss water and I think I’ll pick up a few of those. I’ll just make sure those always get played with on the carpet.

    • Stacey — The Voss water comes in plastic, too! That’s what we use for the kids. I’d never give them glass to play with. Just look for them in the water aisle. I’m sure your grocery store has them.

  2. I have many sensory bottles I’ve made in my classroom. One favorite for the hyperactive child that needs a little bit more calming down is the VOSS bottle with clear shampoo and marbles in it. Something about watching the marbles really calms the spirit. We also use pipe cleaners cut up with a magnet on the side to move them up and down. Love your idea!
