Easter is no doubt a time of year that children can become full of chocolate and high in energy. With that in mind, I decided to make calming sensory bottles with an Easter theme.
If you’re not familiar with sensory bottles, they are so simple to make and great to add whatever fillings you like.
Children of all ages really like them because, depending on what you include, they can have a very calming effect on children as they watch the pieces move about inside the bottle.
Recommended ages: 2 years +
(Strict and active supervision at all time is required)
Easter sensory bottles
To make my calming sensory bottles with an Easter theme, you’ll need :
- small plastic test tube bottle (or similar)
- Easter themed erasers
- glitter (optional)
- clear dish soap
- super glue
Of course you can fill your Easter themed sensory bottles with whatever you can find around your house.
Begin by collecting some adorable little Easter erasers.
If you’re able to find yourself some pastel colored sequins, they’ll go a long way to add to the Easter-y feel of your sensory bottles too.
These bits and pieces can be typically found in Dollar stores or craft stores. The erasers make a great stocking filler and alternative to giving children chocolate too.
When constructing your calming Easter sensory bottles, start by add clear dish soap, filling them each only half way.
This will ensure your sensory bottles don’t overflow once you add all the extra goodies.
Sprinkle in your sequins.
Drop in your Easter themed erasers.
Add some glitter if you choose to.
How adorable! Am I right?
Don’t forget to secure the lid with some super glue.
As you can see, they really as lovely.
Not only would they be great for calming a hyperactive child, but they’d be a great alternative to giving children chocolate.
I don’t know about you, but I could enjoy watching the Easter themed pieces swirling around the sensory bottle for a long time.
It really does have quite a calming effect.
You could even turn it into a game by asking your child, “can you see a rabbit?”.
So regardless of weather you want to give your child an alternative gift this Easter to chocolate and provide them with a sensory bottle kit to prepare, or you want to give your child one made up, they are a great idea.
Of course you can use whatever bits and pieces you have around the home.
Do you think your child would like one of these calming Easter themed sensory bottles this year?
