How to Make Sensory Bottles
- 1 (16 ounce) plastic storage/sensory bottle (available at Michaels, Walgreens or similar bottles here)
- 2 to 3 (6 ounce) bottles Elmer’s Glue in clear
- About 1 cup warm water
- About 1 tablespoon glitter or confetti (if desired)
- Winter Toys (if desired)
For this project, we used:
Empty one bottle of glue into the bottle.
Fill the empty glue bottle about half full with warm water (about ¼ cup) and seal with the lid. Shake well to combine the remaining glue with the water. Pour into jar with glue and shake or stir to combine.
If you are adding glitter or toys, add part of the glitter and toys into the glue mixture.
Seal the jar and shake well. If the glitter or confetti does not move easily, add more warm water. If the glitter or confetti moves to quickly, add additional glue. Continuing adding in layers with the glitter and toys until you achieve your desired effect.
When the contents of the bottle move according to your preference, seal the bottle and glue the lid closed to avoid spills.
If desired, cover the lid with duct tape or additional decorations.
