Science Discovery Bottles- THE BIG LIST!!!!

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011


These are just a few different kinds of Sensory bottle ideas make your own variations.

Make sure to ALWAYS seal your bottles securely! I cannot emphasize this enough. Unless you want your bottle opened and the contents poured out. SEAL IT… with glue. Duct tape can be peeled off by a determined kiddo. Glue is much harder for them to open up.
I also only use Gatorade and G2 bottles. They have a thicker plastic and withstand being played with often. I have some in my class that are several years old and get played with daily!

Jellyfish Discovery Bottle

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Only use Gatorade or G2 bottles for the sensory bottles they are a heavier plastic so they hold up better and keep a unison look so everything looks good. They come in different sizes you can find smaller ones for small hands if you need to.

Make sure to ALWAYS seal your bottles securely! I cannot emphasize this enough. Unless you want your bottle opened and the contents poured out. SEAL IT… with glue. Duct tape can be peeled off by a determined kiddo. Glue is much harder for them to open up.

After awhile it separates even more to several different layers

Glow in the Dark Bottle
Add small glow in the dark items such as stars to a bottle. Do not add any water. Children can put the bottle under a box, and look through a hole to observe what happens when the bottle is placed in the dark. Or they can take the bottle to a darkened room, or under a table covered with a sheet.
