This pretty princess sensory bottle was a big hit with my two youngest daughters. They loved the beautiful colours and shapes of course, but they also liked the sound. The beads from the plastic mardi gras necklace make a tinkling sound on their way down.
My girls liked listening to the beads and watching the gems and confetti sink down. They also liked how pretty this sensory bottle was.
- empty water bottle (I always use Voss water bottles because I like the size and shape of them)
- butterfly and flower shaped confetti
- pink plastic hearts
- plastic silver mardi gras necklace
- optional: pink or purple glitter
Pour out about a quarter of the water in a water bottle. Place the mardi gras beads, pink hearts, gems, and flower and butterfly shaped confetti inside. You may need to add a bit more water to fill it up to nearly the top. If you choose to add glitter, you can add it at this point.
Replace the lid and give it a good shake. You can secure the lid with a hot glue gun if you are going to be using this princess sensory bottle with little ones. Adult supervision should of course be used as with any sensory activity.

If you want to, you can add some pink or purple glitter before you add the water and give the sensory bottle a good shake.
