If you are looking for a colorful and fun sensory activity for preschoolers, try making your own sensory bottles! They are easy to make, and once you have all the supplies, you can make more than one depending on theme, season, or child’s interest. Let’s make a Fall Leaves Sensory Bottle! This is perfect for October OR November. I found some adorable Fall Thanksgiving confetti that is linked below.
Sensory Activities for Preschoolers
To get started, you will need sensory bottles. You can buy a set of them on Amazon. Confetti is a nice touch, and we used foil confetti in the shape of leaves. Clear Elmer’s Glue, water, and (optional) tape or glue to secure the lid are the last items needed.
How to Make a Sensory Bottle
Pour the glue into the bottle.
Add the confetti leaves.
Fill the remainder of the bottle with water.
Secure the lid on the bottle. Use tape or glue if desired.
Shake up the contents of the bottle until the leaves move around freely!
