Today we had a lot of fun! We made some sensory bottles! I always see these on Pinterest and think how great they would be for my class.. yet I never actually make them! Let me tell you… take the five minutes and MAKE THEM! Your students/children will love them :)
Here are some pictures of before shaken and after shaken!
The red bottle is simply half water and half baby oil! Use some food coloring to die the water FIRST. Then, once you have the color you want, add baby oil! This makes it look like a lava lamp! It looks much cooler in person, as it was hard to capture on my camera phone! Here is what I used!
NOW FOR THE IMPORTANT PART! Be sure to use crazy glue, super glue or gorilla glue to clue the cap on. We all know our kiddo's, and we know how much fun it would be to open the bottle to look inside… hahaha.. . NOT a good idea! I even took it another step further and used duck tape to cover the bottle. My theory…. out of sight… out of mind!
