This New Year’s sensory bottle adds a bit of festive flair to any New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day celebrations. Even though it is especially for the kids, it can also fit in with the festivities and be set out as part of the decor.
- empty water bottle (I used a Voss water bottle because I like the look of the lid)
- silver or other festive curled ribbon
- numbers of the new year (we used small number shaped candles and cut the wicks off)
Fill the empty water bottle with water, almost to the very top. Add the numbers, the ribbon curls and the confetti and put the lid back on the bottle. If you are going to be using this snowflake sensory bottle with younger kids, you may want to secure the lid in place using a hot glue gun.
If you can’t find the wax candle numbers, you can use plastic numbers (like the magnetic kind) or foam ones. The trick is to make sure that they are small enough to fit in the bottle top but large enough to be seen in the midst of all that confetti!
