Sensory bottles are super easy to make and lots of fun to play with, as well as being great for calming your child. This Butterfly Sensory Bottle is a fun, no-mess sensory play activity which can also be used in teaching about butterflies, used as a calm down tool or even a timer.
Butterfly Sensory Bottle
To make this gorgeous Sensory Bottle, you will need:
- 12 oz. Sensory Bottle (This is a VOSS bottle in the pictures)
- 1 x 5 oz. bottle of Elmer’s Clear Glue
- 1 package Butterfly gems
- 1 TBSP Iridescent Glitter
Making this Bottle
First, gather all your supplies – an empty sensory bottle, the glue, the butterfly gems, glitter and water.
Take the lid off your bottle and pour in the glue.
Next, add glitter and butterfly gems.
Slowly, add water into the bottle until it is full.
Close the bottle well and shake the contents of the bottle until all contents are mixed together well.
You can glue the lid on with a hot glue gun if you wish.
Children will have fun tipping the bottom up and down, watching the butterflies floating around and sinking to the bottom.
This sensory bottle can be used as part of a butterfly study, a timer, a calm down tool and more.
