You will need: a clear plastic bottle and any materials to fill it!
The aim of the sensory bottle is to give your child opportunities to observe and experiment.
Babies will have fun watching the materials change shape, appearance and making different sounds with sensory bottles.
Toddlers enjoy the same experimentation, and helps their language develop as they talk about what they can see and hear. Toddlers can also learn so much from making sensory bottles!

You will need: confetti stars and fairy liquid

You will need: Pipecleaners, confetti and a bit of rice to make sound effects!
