We do all things holidays here which means we take many similar activities and change them to fit the seasons or the different holidays. Memorial Day is coming up soon and so will the 4th of July, so we made a patriotic sensory bottle that looks like fireworks too!

GLITTER SENSORY BOTTLES

These kind of glittery sensory bottles are so easy to make and are so versatile. Just check out our Valentine’s, St Patricks Day, Easter, Ocean, and Silver or Gold glitter bottles. I love how quickly we can whip one up and how pretty they look. There’s always at least one out on our craft table! This patriotic sensory bottle is perfect for Spring and Summer play.

HOW TO MAKE PATRIOTIC SENSORY BOTTLE

Squeeze the blue glitter glue into the bottle of water {I drink the expensive water first and refill with tap water}. Add a mix of red and silver glitter. NOTE: I chose to add one drop of blue food coloring later on. Recap the bottle and shake, shake, shake to get everything mixed up. Add a ring of decorative tape too! Glitter bottles are awesome and make great sensory processing tools for home or school.

With these type of glitter bottles, I love how the glitter falls down to the bottom. It’s such a neat affect. You would never guess the swirling beauty of it until you shake it up! This is a great addition to any patriotic themed lesson plan or activity session! Our patriotic slime is also tons of fun and easy to do.

  1. I love this idea and am planning on giving this activity a try with my multi-handicapped students. I was wondering how much glitter glue and water goes in the bottle.
