Mini Rainbow Sensory Bottles

In addition to Nora's toys, I wanted to create a safe sensory experience for her. What better than mini-rainbow bottles for my rainbow baby. 

Montessori friendly way to introduce colors and small object to babies in a safe and fun way.

I had seen this pin, around Pinterest and knew I wanted to do something similar. But, I wanted something smaller and more manageable for a young baby.

I used small plastic bottles. They are refillable craft bottles meant for sand art and other similar projects.

The objects are just things I had at home. Every bottle is different, but the objects included wooden beads, Pom-poms, foam pieces, buttons, ribbon, shredded paper, wrapping bows, fabric flowers, small scraps of fabric, paper clips, colored pasta, mini umbrellas, mini erasers, confetti, and other similar objects. Pretty much if it fit into the bottle and was the right color, it went in!


I loved that they all turned out a little different from each other. They are truly a unique sensory experience on their own and as a group. Henry has been obsessed with these -- especially the yellow -- since I finished them. 


Nora has been completely mesmerized when I introduce a bottle to her. She also enjoyed studying the group as a whole. It turned out to be a great way for her to get some tummy time in. The bottle is an easy size for her to hold and to watch. They are pretty lightweight so I don't have to worry about her getting hurt if she drops it. 



After the success of these, I can't wait to make some other themed sensory bottles for her!

Does your baby like sensory bottles?

  7. Travelling along with your baby is one nice time to be with him, however it can be terribly exhausting and exhausting particularly once your baby's not in the least snug, and wondering the proper baby provides required for the trip is kind of a nuisance since you cannot bring all the kid's stuffs at the side of you click here.
