Sensory bottles are our jam!
Much like easy sensory bag activities such as this really easy peasy mess free fall painting we made not too long ago, sensory bottles and sensory activities are just so much fun too!
Let me tell you, this DIY fun sensory bottle craft was so much fun to make!
My LO helped me with the little stem aka “green hat” for the pumpkin and it came out so epic!
She is so creative – my little So 🙂
I’ll be sharing below how easy this fun sensory bottle was to make and how you can make this spooky sensory bottle for sensory play too!

Easy peasy, right?
Wait, but how can I put this simple and easy Halloween sensory bottle together?
I’ll share the steps with you right below…
But, first here is our DIY Pumpkin Sensory Bottle Video:
Let’s get into the steps for this easy peasy sensory bottle:
First, you will need to color your rice the color orange.
Here are the steps I take to color our uncooked rice for sensory play.
While that is drying on the side, add a fun pumpkin face on your sensory bottle.
Once the rice is completely dry (which should be in minutes if you color your rice the way we do) insert it into the sensory bottle by using a funnel.
Don’t over stuff it with rice to the very top because then you won’t be able to move it around.
Then, use a hot glue gun to secure the cap for extra security.
You can add a fun hat/pumpkin stem by using a green foam sheet and rubber band but this is completely optional. Supervision is advised.
Voila! You’ve a really fun pumpkin sensory bottle!
