We recently visited Temple ISD's "Excellence in Education" vendor fair and received a lot of questions about or Sensory/Magnet bottles. Our homemade bottles were a hit at our summer pop-ups as well with all ages!
Below you can find instructions on how to create your own at home.
We used this blog post as a guide to create our bottles.
The possibilities are endless with sensory bottles. Add Glitter to your baby oil for a fun twist and eye catching sparkle, or throw in some metal washers with the colored rice and use the magnets to seek them out.
Some tips from our founding board member Ashley Heinrich on constructing your bottles:
"The baby oil is key to keeping your metal objects from not rusting, the glitter helps to mask any discoloration on the bottle that could be caused by the oil."
"I think the colored rice really works best for longevity purposes."
