Ingredients Needed to Make Winter Sensory Bottle :
- 5 oz Elmer’s blue glitter glue (147ml)
- 350 ml warm water
- 500 ml glass bottle (or Voss Water Bottle)
- fine blue glitter
- super glue
What you need to recreate this easy DIY winter sensory bottle project :
I suggest you to order few more glass bottles because we are about to make many more different, fun and interactive sensory bottles for kids! 500ml glass bottle is totally fine, although you can also use plastic bottle since the glass is more breakable.
We are going to need blue glue glitter, since it 100% reflects the winter sensory activity theme. You can use any brand for this, or you can just simply use clear glue and mix it with fine blue glitter!
Now this is the fun part where we will add the mix-ins that will float around the bottle. Add any kind of blue shade fine glitter powder, sequins, pom poms, snowflakes – you name it! Let your imagination do the thing.
And now – the confetti snowflakes! This will make or break the idea of a winter sensory bottle. YOU HAVE TO add them in, I promise, it will definitely make the winter sensory activity better.
You are going to need only a small amount of super glue to close the bottle lid. Please supervise your kids that this can only be done by an adult.
How To Make Snowflake Winter Sensory Bottle
1. Add blue glitter glue to the bottle.
2. Mix it with warm water. and stir it well.
3. Add in snowflakes.
4. Mix in fine blue glitter powder.
5. Close the lid with a super glue so it won’t accidentally open while playing.
6. Shake it well and play!
Step 1 : Add full bottle of blue Elmer’s glitter glue to the glass bottle.
The Elmer’s original blue glitter glue bottle has 147ml in it, so you can use it all, just like I did!
Step 2 : Now mix in warm water, it should be warmer than a room temperature water.
Add the remaining amount of water (around 350ml) until the bottle is almost full. Leave a little space for the mix-ins and for the ability to shake it well.
Step 3 and 4 : Add in the fake snowflakes and fine glitter.
Step 5 : Glue the top on if you have babies or toddlers.
You are going to use only a small amount to close it, super wise your kids that it is a job for adults if making the bottle with them!
Step 6 : Shake everything well and play!
Now we have made a super fun winter sensory bottle to play with! It is so magical and festive that it will be the top played sensory activity this winter season!
