Holiday Snow Sensory Bottle
Sensory bottles are the coolest sensory tools, in my opinion. 🙂
We’ve made many different types of sensory bottles throughout the years and my girls very favorite ones have to be the Rainbow sensory bottles and this set of Water bead sensory bottles.
They are so simple to make, and this holiday one is too!
This one is really nice for the holidays.
The foam balls look like snow and almost give off this sensory bottle snow globe effect.
It doesn’t contain water but you can play an I-spy game by adding in a few pom poms like I did!
I added in colorful ones so we learn about colors.
I’ll be sharing with you exactly how I made this one below! 🙂
If you are toy shopping for your kids currently this December I’ve compiled a massive list for 1 year olds, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarteners. You don’t want to miss these!

Craft foam balls (or you can use the faux snow I made for my girls within the sensory bottle)
Hot glue gun (to shut the top of the bottle for extra security.)
That’s really all you need!
How to put together your blizzard in a bottle
It’s really simple. I’ll add the steps below:
Open your sensory craft bottle.
Add in your pom poms first.
Then, add in your faux snow (make sure to not overfill it so the pom poms show through and so it is easily moveable.)
Before you close your craft bottle, use a hot glue gun to secure it even more. Close it and let it cool down before giving it to your child.
Once it has cooled down, give it to your child so they can play with it!
What do you put in a sensory bottle?
Well, first off, it has to fit.
And, secondly, make it fun and prepare it for a bonus learning experience.
I created an I spy Alphabet Sensory Bottle with plain white rice and letter beads for an I-Spy game for my girls to learn about the letters they see!
You can also try this fun colorful beads sensory bottle which allows for a similar I-Spy game of ,”Call out the colors you see!”
There are literally tons of ways to create a sensory bottle. Some of the ones we’ve made have been improvised!
What liquid goes in sensory bottles?
We have used hair gel, water, dyed water, no liquid at all. These are the main ones we have tried and they work well for a sensory bottle!

How do you make a sensory Fall Bottle
I made a sensory fall bag recently that could work for a sensory bottle.
It is really fun and uses the same ingredients as this instructional guide here.
Just replace the water beads with fall sequence leaves.
Here are some of the sensory bottles we have made that are listed on my site:
Have you tried making a sensory bottle before?
Share with me what type you went with and how you made it. I’d love to learn about it!
