Here’s a lovely tutorial from Kristen of Little Mama Jama.Everyone welcome Kristin and check out this awesome tutorial for sensory bottles!
Thank you, Shary, for inviting me to guest post on your awesome blog! I’m Kristin, from Little Mama Jama, and I’m so excited to be here. I’m a big fan of Shary Loves You, and often read her posts about art and crafting with longing. You see, I haven’t been blessed with even a little of Shary’s craftiness. Oh, I can be crafty…but in the other sense of the term. 😉 Below you’ll see my attempt at getting in touch with my creative side.
I came up with some glitter, confetti, pom poms, dice, beads, and ribbon. Did you notice the awesome “C” ribbon? I couldn’t resist!
First, you’ll need to wash the bottles and get those pesky labels off. Some people say that hot, soapy water removes the sticky label residue, but I didn’t have any luck with that. My tip? Baby oil. It’s a little messy, but it does the trick! Next, fill your bottles with your fun items. I put beads, dice, pom poms and ribbon in this one. C will love making lots of noise with this!
I put a few drops of neon blue food coloring in the second bottle, then filled it halfway with water. After adding confetti, I used baby oil to fill the other half of the bottle. Shake to mix the food coloring. I think C will enjoy watching the oil and blue water separate.
In the third bottle, I added pom poms, dice, glitter stars and ribbon. Then I filled it with water.
Apply hot glue to the inside of the bottle caps before twisting them on. Here’s the final product! C loves watching the objects move and making lots of noise!
