When I was pregnant, I remember pinning a ton of things on Pinterest. One of the many things I pinned, were sensory bottles. I was reminded of sensory bottles when Summer's daycare began making them.
Sensory bottles allow infants to see things up close that would not be safe for them to play with otherwise. You can use just about anything - rocks, sticks, leaves. Since everything is covered in snow at the moment, I decided to use a few craft supplies I had hanging around the house.
- Clean plastic bottle (I washed an old Gatorade bottle.)
- Contents for the bottle (I used feathers and wooden beads.)
- Packing tape (You don't want the baby to be able to open it and have access to its contents. )
1. Wash bottle and lid. Dry completely.
2. Select items for sensory bottle and pour them in.
3. Place lid back on bottle and seal with packing tape.
Now you have a sensory bottle your little one can learn and play with! Sensory bottles should only be used with adult supervision.
