Sensory play is so important for both toddlers and babies, but have you seen how expensive some of the sensory toys can be? If you want to have some cute sensory toys made of glitter, sequins and more then keep reading so you can learn how to make your very own super sensory bottles for even the youngest kids can have fun.
These sensory bottles are otherwise known as discovery bottles. They were one of my favourite things to occupy my kid with before he could walk and talk. These bottles are a safe way for kids to safely explore all kinds of things that would normally be off-limits. Plus, they are quick, easy and super affordable to make as well.
You will need to start with containers like pictured above or plastic bottles. Make sure the lid fits really well so that you don't have any messes or choking hazards later. You will also want some super glue to keep the lid on once the bottles are full of those super-fun contents.
So go ahead and collect some interesting contents to put inside your sensory bottles. Think about what items they would love to shake or touch but normally couldn't - like beads, buttons and more. Here are some ideas of what you can include:
- dried pasta
- tooth picks
- number or alphabet shapes
- small toys like cars or animals
