Sensory bottles are fantastic for babies. Our sensory bottles are my baby’s favorite toys. I’ll be sharing our favorite ideas for baby sensory bottles. Today I’m sharing one inspired by the weather – a snow sensory bottle!
- Clean, empty plastic bottle from the recycling
- snow (or crushed ice if you don’t have snow!)
- hot glue gun (optional)
Put the snow into the bottle. It is seriously that simple! I didn’t glue the lid onto the bottle this time because 1- I don’t think my baby can open the bottle and 2- if he did open it, I was ok with him getting snow on his hands. If you don’t want the lid to come off the bottle, then you should hot glue the lid and let it set.
Then let your baby play! My little guy was intrigued by how cold the bottle was. I loved that he used so many senses – looking at the snow, feeling the cold through the bottle…even attempting to taste it!
This was a fun way for our littlest guy to enjoy the snow when it was too cold for him to for him to play outside!
