We absolutely love sensory bottles in our house, it is perfect for little hands to hold and a glitter sensory bottle is such a good way of calming down a little one down. These bottles are full of sparkle and are really easy to make.
These bottles use 2 ingredients – glitter glue and water.
To make them, we mixed 60ml of glitter glue with the same amount of hot water in a measuring jug. Stir the mixture until there is no evidence of the glue and it is a watery/sparkly mixture. Pour it into your bottle and allow it to cool down completely before topping the bottle up with cold water. Once you are sure that the glitter moves in the jar, seal the lid with glue.The glitter glue we used for our bottles was from glitz it and one bottle of their glitter makes 2 sensory bottles.
If your glitter mixture doesn’t move, pour it back into your measuring jug, add some more water and stir it again. Once you have the glitter more mobile you can move it back into your bottle. The glitter settles when the bottle is not in use but it is easy to activate again by shaking.
Please make sure that you never leave your little one unattended with their glitter sensory bottle, enjoy watching them being fascinated by the glitter it really does help their concentration levels and is a lovely calming visual activity.
