Today's sensory activity is super fun for summer! 

Who doesn't love popsicles? We sure love eating them, but in this activity, they're also fun to play with. 

Sensory bottles are great for play and for calming when feeling anxious or over stimulated. They're visually stimulating with soothing colors and floating popsicles.

Kids love to help make these sensory bottles too. They can help mix, pour and also add the popsicles. We counted the popsicles as we put them in the bottle for a little extra learning.

This DIY sensory activity is great for toddlers, preschoolers and school aged kids. They will be engaged and come back to this bottle time and time again for play or to relax.

Helpful tips:

  • Do not skip the glue. It helps cut down on bubbles when using the sensory bottle and gives the water a thicker texture that's better for the popsicles to float .
  • Add glitter or sequins to the water and glue mixture.
