It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, my boys are always walking around the house, humming Christmas carols to themselves. So while it’s warm outside right now, this Winter Snowflake Sensory Bottle will bring the magic of snow to your little one.
Today we’re talking about the Letter S on Mommy Evolution as part of my Alphabet Sensory Activities Series. After all, S is for Snowflake! This post contains affiliate links.
Winter Snowflake Sensory Bottle
Materials you’ll need:
(contains affiliate links):
- Empty Water Bottle (Personally I like Voss bottled water because you can stand the bottle up on either end. And you can get them in plastic, not just glass.)
- Baby Oil
- Snowflake Buttons or Snowflake Beads
- Glitter (if desired)
Yes, that’s really all you need!
- Wash your water bottle
- Remove the labels. (Goo Gone is awesome for getting rid of labels!)
- Fill the bottle 75% with baby oil.
- Add in water. I like to leave some room in the bottle so my kids can really shake the bottle to make loads of bubbles.
- If you want to add in some serious sparkle, add in some glitter. (The bottle you see here doesn’t have added glitter.)
- Super glue the top on. (Some people prefer to glue gun the bottle closed.)
- Have fun!
For kids, just the sound of the water sloshing can be extremely relaxing. Add in the bubbles from the water and baby oil mixture, and your child can get mellow out to the soothing sight of the snowflakes.
