Girls (and some boys!) are going to go crazy over this Unicorns and Fairies Sensory Bottle. It’s so pretty that it could even be used as a bedroom or playroom decoration when they are finished playing with it.
Unicorns and Fairies Sensory Bottle:
- empty water bottle (I prefer the look of Voss bottles or craft store sensory bottles)
- clear dish soap (Dawn or LemiShine are good because they are thicker)
- small unicorn and fairy figurines (you can often find these in the party favour section of the Dollar Store or Target)
- purple glitter
- pink, purple, teal, and white pony beads
- small flower gems
- short ribbon curls in pink, purple, teal, and white
- optional: Superglue to seal
- Cut short lengths of ribbon. Use scissors to curl them.
- Pour clear dish soap into the container until it’s 2/3 full.
- Add the glitter, unicorn and fairy toys, beads, ribbon curls, and flowers.
- Fill any remaining space with water.
- Replace the lid. If you’re going to be using with younger kids, then I recommend that you super glue the lid in place and allow the glue to dry before giving it to your child to play with.
As with all sensory activities for kids, adult supervision is recommended at all times. Even if you’ve Superglued the lid in place, it can still come off and the bottle contains small parts which are choking hazards.
Sensory and Learning Opportunities:
This Unicorns and Fairies Sensory Bottle allows children to engage their visual, tactile, and proprioceptive sensory systems.
Kids can practise counting as their count the unicorns and fairies. They can get it some colour and counting learning as they count how many pink flowers there are or how many purple ribbons.
