As today was the coldest day of the year so far even so much so that my little guy who was wrapped up to the nines had a pink nose, cheeks and cold fingers even with gloves. As for me I was quite glad of a day indoors. I dug out the sensory bottles I made for Jasper well before Christmas. Well the enjoyment he got out of these very cheep and easy to make bottles was amazing and after raiding the recycling bag again this week ( all clean of course) I have found a couple of 2L bottles also which I'm going to use.
You only need clean dry bottles, and anything really that will stimulate your child's senses.
The bottles in the picture contain dry pasta, water and straws, food dye,water and vegetable oil and lavender infused cloth.
For the noisy bottles pasta, dried peas, lentils , sand, bells, twigs and small pebbles are a few I use. but again please make sure that you glue the lids on these bottles also to prevent chocking hazards.
Anything bright and colourful such as feathers, pom poms,shredded colourful paper and anything else that catches your eyes.
I have experimented with soil, leaves, seaweed and grass all very good but do need to be changed often.
I hope these few ideas will inspire the creative you.
