Here are some adorable Christmas sensory bottle for babies and toddlers. They are super easy to make and will captivate and delight your little one. Sensory bottles are great for developing visual and audial senses, which is how we learn about the world around us.
Christmas is such an exciting time of year and it’s lovely to include some handmade toys amongst the many other manufactured toys. A sensory bottle is such a lovely toy for a young child to play with.
To make this Christmas sensory bottle for babies and toddlers, you will need –
- Clean empty drinking bottle (or similar)
- Jingle bells
- Pipe cleaners
As well as the above items, I included 1 tbsp of red glitter, 1 cup of plain rice, 1 cup of dyed green rice and 1 cup of dyed red rice. This made it look a little more like Christmas. If you’d like to know how to dye rice then click here.
Recommended ages: 0 – 3 years
(Strict and active supervision is required with all my activities)
Watch and Listen
This sensory bottle is wonderful as it’s interesting for children to look at and watch as the pieces move about inside the bottle. It’s also lovely to hear the rice and the tinkle of the Christmas bells inside.
Here is a video of me making a variety of sensory bottles, including this Christmas sensory bottle.
My little Boo (2 years) absolutely loved helping me make this Christmas sensory bottle. She loves walking around the house with it and shake it, stop and see where the bells end up etc. It’s so great and I love that it’s her own little piece of Christmas.
