Have you ever made a sensory bottle? We make them often and our newest one is an Earth sensory bottle! These kinds of sensory bottles or science discovery bottles are easy to make and require simple ingredients. We like to use what’s around and in our cupboards. Whether you call them sensory bottles, calm down bottles or science discovery bottles, they are pretty cool for kids! This one is particularly fun for Earth Day, Earth science, and Spring!

HOW TO MAKE

Have your kids pick out all the blue and green pony beads if you have a multi colored package like we do. Next squeeze the bottle of corn syrup into the VOSS bottle. We use most of the 16oz bottle. Put the cap on the water bottle. Wrap your patterned tape around the top. Have fun! *note that rubbing alcohol removes sticky gunk from tape and labels.*

MAKE IT SCIENCE

You can also use this Earth sensory bottle as a fun science experiment. If you are planning on exploring viscosity, this is great! You can also experiment with a variety of liquids to see how the pony beads travel through the various liquids like we did for this simple viscosity experiment.

Take a look at what happens to the beads when you flip the bottle over. Be patient but you will see a change! Also try water, glitter glue/water mix, hair gel, or oil!
