4 Spooky Halloween Calming Sensory Bottles
We have a collection of sensory bottles at home. They are so easy to make!
I’ll definitely list the ones we have made down below so you can check them out too!
This specific one I wanted to make, was to be themed for Halloween (of course) and I wanted it to be a slow motion calm down sensory bottle.
Sometimes, it’s nice to unwind and help our children in different areas of relaxation and calmness using sensory play when they are feeling all types of feelings and emotions.
So, the idea was to create one, but it ended up being 4, which is okay with me. We all can have one! 🙂

Elmer’s Glue (preferably clear glue)
Food coloring (optional); Water
Now, let’s put these sensory bottles together.
How to put together: Four Spooky Halloween Sensory Bottles
Add hot water into cup.
I used a Ball Wide Mouth Cup that measures 2 cups already which is perfect because it will fill my sensory bottle very close to the top.
Insert glue to about ½ of the cup. (Example: If you are using 2 cups, add give or take 1 cup of glue. If you are using 1 cup, add give or take ½ cup of glue.
Stir very well so that the glue mixes with the hot water.
Set aside until water cools down.
Once your water mixed with glue mixture has cooled down, add it into a craft bottle using a funnel.
Then, for the fun part!
Insert glitter and food coloring (optional).
If you are inserting food coloring, make sure to only use a tiny little bit, so it doesn’t dilute the water heavily making the water really dark where you are unable to see the glitter moving around.
Personally, I would skip the food coloring step but do what feels right for you and what you are trying to attempt. 🙂
Now, you are ready to close your bottle. Use a hot glue gun (adult use only) to close it tightly and securely.
Shake it up! And, watch the magic unfold.
Let me know in the comments if you try it out! It’s really fun to make and use for on the go or when needed.
