Educational Play-Sensory Bottles

We saved up some plastic bottles for a while to make sensory bottles. This is a great way for toddlers/preschoolers to explore and learn. Its also a great travel boredom buster. There are so many ways to create these! Here are a few we made today.

This one consists of water, glitter and blue food coloring. Blue is a relaxing color and the swirling glitter resembles a snowglobe.

This one consists of rice with hidden objects. I stuck in there a blue felt ball, a tiny hair clip, a wooden bead and an old earring. I tell the girls "Find the brown bead" ect. and they shake the bottle until they find the object.

This one consists of simply oil and water.

We ran out of bottles but will be making more as we come across some. Here are several more I like.
