Color Hunt- Discovery Bottle

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.

We went on a color hunt. I took different colored art supplies pipe cleaners, pompoms, feathers, beaded necklaces, beads, Foam letters and numbers, etc. and spread them around the yard.

I gave the kids baskets and had themĀ  go on a hunt for colors. When they found all the colors and items they wanted they brought them back to the empty bottles and we designated a color for each bottle and they started separating out all the items they had found. When they were all done, I added water and glitter. And then I sealed the bottle.

Whats great about these bottles is they are still great for sorting. I have given the children a bottle and asked them to go around the classroom or house and find items that color.

  1. Do the foam letters and pompoms, etc. deteriorate over time?
