Sensory play is one of the most important developmental tools that we can provide for our infants and toddlers. Sure they get a lot of sensory play and exposure from everyday life, but a little concerted effort never hurts either.
I don’t consider myself much of a DIYer usually, especially with that popularity of Pinterest, my little projects are just put completely to shame. But not in the eyes of a 15 month old. He doesn’t know pinterest and I am mommy and therefore the most amazing person ever anyway! So I can DIY for Ike.
And I do.
I made him a few discovery bottles around Christmas time. Nothing fancy, I seriously found all of these things in my craft box and in the pantry.
- Small Water Bottles – I used 8oz Kroger brand ones because that is what I had leftover from a party.
- Olive Oil
- Light Corn Syrup
- Hot Glue Gun
- Glitter and Water
- Olive Oil and Water
- Corn Syrup and sequins
To seal the bottles from my little Houdini I screwed the lids on after placing a thin bead of hot glue around the edge.
