Color Word Sensory Bottles, FREEBIE, & GIVEAWAY





 I LOVE sensory bottles!  They are so relaxing for kids and teachers too.  I wanted to make some new color sensory bottles but I wanted to add literacy.  How fun would it be to add the color word IN the bottle?  With the words inside, they could be used for so many color word & letter activities.  They are super simple to make too!  I collected Gatorade bottles.  It has a wide mouth and is a heavier plastic.  But any bottle will work.  Here is how you can make them.


Step 1:  Find objects to add to the color bottles.  I had popsicle sticks, pom  poms, and beads on hand. Just look through your art or craft supplies and see what colored objects you have on hand.
Step 2:  Find different shades of paper for each color.  I used scraps I had left over from other projects.  I cut small rectangles and squares.  You don't need many.
Step 3:  Find different shades of tissue paper for each color.  Again, you don't need much!  I cut out some rectangle strips.    
 Step 4:  Cut out the color word cards.  I already made them for you!  Click HERE to get your FREE color word cards!  I made two sets of color words.  One set is in all uppercase and one set is in all lowercase.  Color words included:  red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, black, brown, and rainbow.
 Step 5:  Glue your color word cards back to back.
 Step 6:  Put all the items in the bottles.  Charlie like helping me with this step and it was great fine motor work too!
 Step 7:  Glue and tape the lids.  I used hot glue to seal the lids.  This is a VERY important step if you are making them for preschoolers, toddlers, or babies!  Then add tape around the lid.  This keeps kids from picking off the hot glue.  I used matching colored tape!
You are finished!  
I hope you enjoy your bottles as much as we do!  My 7 month old and my 2 year old are loving them.  Hopefully they will let me take them to school!  --I was so excited when my 2 year old told me "O" when he was looking at the yellow sensory bottle.  My preschoolers are going to LOVE them!

I am linking up with Forth Grade Frolics for Monday Made It!   

Thanks for reading to the end.  Here is my first giveaway.  Good luck!
