We decided to make a different Sensory Bottle each month so of course for March, we made a St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Bottle!
The kids are loving making these bottles! Sensory bottles are really a perfect craft for all ages! They are versatile, educational, reusable, unique and fun to make!! I really like making these because there is no right or wrong way and the possibilities are endless!
For our St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Bottle we used some smaller VOSS water bottles. This time they were full of sparkling water. You don’t have to use the VOSS bottles. You can use any glass or plastic water bottle. It’s totally up to you. I really like the look of the VOSS bottle. If you do decide to use a VOSS bottle, just a heads up; they are heavy! If you have a younger child, you will definitely want to help them hold it. In the case of younger children, you may just want to elect to make it out of a plastic bottle. We found the bottles at a local organic food store. You can save a trip there and order them directly from Amazon and have them delivered right to your door by clicking here.
For our St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Bottle, we used the following items:
- VOSS water bottle (I used glass but you can use plastic)
- Clear Glue
- Green Variety Pack of Beads
- Hot glue gun if you want to seal the lid
Once you have all of your supplies ready to go, remove label from the water bottle (if you are using a plastic bottle). Dump out about 1/2 cup to 1 cup of the water. Then add your gems in.
Then add in your glitter, sequins and glue:
Put the lid on and shake the bottle:
Now, when the bottle started really bubbling I should have stopped and let the bottle settle down. I didn’t, I put the lid on and shook the bottle. Then I had the great idea of taking the lid off to let some of the bubbles escape……AND THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED….
So..the moral of that photo is, if you let the bubbles settle down BEFORE putting the lid on, it will be just fine. Then you can seal the bottle up and you will have your very own St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Bottle!
If you want to keep your bottle as a St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Bottle, then hot glue the lid on. The lid won’t be set until 24 hours later so be careful turning it upside down until after then. If you want to reuse it, then don’t seal the bottle.
Have you made sensory bottles before? Which one has been your kids favorite?
