Sensory Bottles for Babies

Homeschool sensory bottles 

From the time they are born, babies recognize their environment through their senses. In the future, they focus on their environment by starting to crawl all on fours and walk. They easily notice the change in the environment. We can develop the senses of babies and children by drawing attention to them and by preparing different effects. We can provide the details of the objects with the senses of sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell.

Making an sensory bottle is really simple. You will fill the bottles with various products. You can use an old plastic bottle or use a bottle that is not dangerous for your transparent baby. It can be in a box. I think the materials you will put inside are limitless. You can convey many concepts, color, theme. So if you are teaching red color, you can prepare a sensory bottle with red material. You can prepare a blue colored sensory bottle by throwing tiny toy fish inside a book about the sea. Options unlimited 🙂
