DIY Sensory Bottles! Super easy. I saved empty water bottles and got a few different things from the dollar store to put in them. (Multi-colored pompoms, glitter, sequins, beads and googly eyes). With all of them but the beads, which I left empty to use as a rattle, I filled the bottles with water and baby oil. (You could probably do it with only baby oil to make things move even slower but I didn't have enough). You shake them up and they create unique visuals for the babies.
Since they are still little, I'm just shaking the bottles with the babies sitting in my lap but they can do it themselves as they get bigger (and toddlers can make their own!)
I'd of course prefer it if they were glass bottles as I'm not fond of plastic, but for the short time they'll play with them I'm not sweating it. It's really just to give them something new to experience. **Make sure to crazy glue the caps to keep them sealed!
So far they are a hit! I'm delighted by their reactions! :-D
Here are some pics from when I first showed them to Riley. She was amazed!
Riv's favorite was the one with the sequins.
