Sensory Bottle for Kids
I love the idea of sensory bottles. They have a calming effect and make wonderful quiet time activities. But sometimes when I go through all the effort and time to create one them my kids, they end up playing with it for a very short time.

So I decided a long time ago that making sensory bottles is just as fun as playing with them. I thought if I involved my kids in the process they would more likely want to play with them and thus benefit from their calming effect! And if they didn’t at least we were able to make a beautiful craft/ activity together!
