.Sensory bottles are super popular and parents tend to use them as a calm down bottle for a child having a meltdown. The elements inside of the sensory bottle are designed to help trigger your child’s senses. Then they are able to experiment with their hands. In this case, your child will be able to move the bottle around and watch the items inside move too.
Depending on the ingredients you use to make your bottle, the combination of glue or hair gel plus warm water mix, and creates an environment that allows the items to move slowly inside the bottle. I personally use hair gel because you can often find it at Dollar Tree. You can add more for slower movements or less if you want things to move a bit quicker.
