Making Sensory Bottles!


Happy Monday everyone – we hope you’re all having a good start to the week!

The children have had lots of fun making sensory bottles recently, so much so that we just had to share it with you all! We used a wide variety of resources to put inside the bottles, choosing ones that we knew would make different sounds when shaken. The older children showed very strong fine motor skills by using the tweezers to transfer the objects into the bottles which was amazing to watch!

After being shown the technique by staff they picked up on the skill very quickly and it was great to see them all taking it in turns so nicely, making sure that all of their friends had a go. All of the children loved being so independent and gained so much confidence during this activity! After the bottles were filled we had lots of fun singing songs and shaking them around. This is something that can be carried out at home too!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
