St. Patrick’s Day Themed Sensory Bottle

Sensory Bottles are so big right now for a variety of reasons:

  1. They are super easy to make
  2. Customizable, you can literally make a sensory bottle for every season and holiday
  3. They have a tremendous response from all types of children (although in my experience they work particularly well for children with autism in helping to calm down and focus)

So far I have made a sensory bottle for Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day. The process is super simple and every bottle ends up being one of a kind!

 

Shopping List:

  • 6 pack of VOSS water bottles (I found them at Wegmans, but you can also order from amazon)
  • little trinkets to put inside
  • glitter
  • food coloring
  • tacky glue

So the first thing I did was cut up the St. Patrick’s Day necklaces I bought. I only ended up adding about half of the beads. I also added the gold and green glitter, you can see the results below.img_3876

So I thought it was missing something and I decided to add the smallest drop of green food coloring and voila! This looks much more festive:

After I finished, I played with it a little myself so I could make sure there wasn’t anything else I wanted to add before gluing on the lid. I used a ton of glue to make sure baby is never able to open it, what a disaster that would be!!! I let the glue dry for at least 24 hours before letting baby have a go.

He loved it!
