How to make sensory bottles x

 Hello readers

I hope you have all had a fantastic week and enjoy your weekend. This week has bene very  busy work wise hence the lack of posts , I will get there eith uploading regularly with the right schedule.

Todays blog will  be how to make a DIY sensory bottle and ideas on how to fill them. They are cheap to make and beneficaial to all children of different needs and ages.

What you will need for a musical sensory bottle :

1. A plastic bottle with a lid.

2. Superglue and small paint brush 

3. Rice or pasta

In a clean plastic bottle place pasta or rice half way until the bottle is full. Ensure you spread on super glue to the bottle and tighten on the lide and leave to dry. Your child will enjoy hearing the noises the different bottle make when shook. You can use them during rhyme time or to distract them when upset. 

What you will need for calming sensory bottles

1. A plastic bottle with a lid

2. Super glue and paint brush

3. Water

4. Food colouring 

5. Sequins or buttons to match the food colouring 

Fill the bottle with water to the top add the food colouring and the coloured buttons to the water. Superglue the lid on and leave to dry. When dry your child wil enjoy watching the sequins or buttons move around in the water. This is an excellent sensory object for your child.

Older children can identify the different colours in the bottles , count the bottles identify shapes in the bottles developing math skills. Social skills can be progressed as turn taking can take places by pasisng the bottles to each other taking turns and waiting.  Children can touch the bottle inndifferent ways by shaking , hitting and tapping  the bottles listening to the different noises.

Food for thought.x

 Hello readers  This is not something I would usually do on my blog but I saw this and needed to share as too many of us in the world put ourselves down and regret things we should not. I really want to share this image with you all.  We should not regret things we have or have not done, things we should have done and things we shouldn't have done. There is  no point giving ourselves a hard time for these things. We are strong. We are independent. We are good people. Never regret a moment of your lives. Live for today and never look back with regret. Focus on our futures and what we can do. This image was chosen from  Happy Friday All x Love Mamma x
