What are Sensory Bottles?
Sensory bottles, also known as discovery bottles or calm-down bottles, are a popular tool for children’s sensory play.
These bottles are filled with various materials such as glitter, beads and water, and they offer a wide range of benefits for kids.
Sensory bottles can help children develop their visual tracking and motor skills, as they tilt and manipulate the bottle to explore its contents.
They also provide a calming and soothing effect, helping children regulate their emotions and reducing stress and anxiety.
Sensory bottles can also be customized to fit a child’s individual needs and interests, making them a versatile and engaging tool for learning and play.
Recycled Materials for Sensory Bottle
When my kids were little, I can’t tell you how many packages of GoGo applesauce.
I swear we bought these things in absolutely bulk.
But I absolutely hated how much trash we created. What on earth could I do with all of those plastic green tops?
Then I thought, what if I used it in a sensory bottle?
Recycled Sensory Bottle
- Wide mouth sensory bottle
- GoGo Squeeze Applesauce tops (or use their yogurt tops that are blue)
- Baby oil
If I was making these recycled sensory bottles again, I would fill it to the brim with tops. But this was an experiment to see how it would work.
I would also add in any extra glitter or sequins that I might have on hand just to add dimension.
If you have a toddler, it won’t take long to gather enough plastic tops! Place your tops into the bottle.
Fill up your sensory bottle with baby oil. Don’t worry about bubbles – that just adds to the aesthetic.
Add in any extras that you have in your craft supplies.
Secure the cap. Either tape it shut or use super glue to make sure your child can’t unscrew the top.
