Supplies For the Sensory Bottle Activity
Sensory bottle activities are really so much fun, because you don’t need to put in a whole lot of effort and drag yourself with hours of crafting to whip up something that looks beautiful.
For this Saint Patrick’s Day activity in particular, you need just these few supplies and you’re sorted.
- 1 (16 ounce) plastic storage/sensory bottle (available at Michaels or Amazon)
- 2 to 3 (6 ounce) bottles Elmer’s Glue in clear
- About 1 cup warm water
- About 1 tablespoon glitter or confetti (if desired)
- Toys (if desired)
And since this sensory bottle goes along the theme of Saint Patrick’s day, I focused on using these-
The colors green and gold went perfectly around the theme of the holiday, and it ended up looking so bright and glittery too!
How To Make A Saint Patrick’s Day Sensory Bottle
Ready to get started on the activity? Follow the instructions below- it is that simple!
Empty one bottle of glue into bottle.
Fill the empty glue bottle about half full with warm water (about ¼ cup) and seal with the lid. Shake well to combine the remaining glue with the water. Pour into jar with glue and shake or stir to combine.
If you are adding glitter or toys, add part of the glitter and toys into the glue mixture.
Seal the jar and shake well. If the glitter or confetti does not move easily, add more warm water. If the glitter or confetti moves to quickly, add additional glue. Continuing adding in layers with the glitter and toys until you achieve your desired effect.
When the contents of the bottle move according to your preference, seal the bottle and glue the lid closed to avoid spills.
If desired, cover the lid with duct tape or additional decorations.
