Kids have so many emotions on a daily basis. There are really high highs, but also low lows. That’s why I love this DIY sensory bottle.
It’s a great calm down tool because kids can sit and focus while they watch the glitter move through the water. It’s kind of like looking at a super cool aquarium. It’s the perfect quiet time activity.
And, kids will love helping you make this Star Wars sensory bottle. They can choose the items to put inside and help put the whole thing together.
DIY Star Wars Sensory Bottle
Supply List Needed for your Sensory Bottle:
- 1 (16 ounce) plastic storage/sensory bottle (available at Michaels or similar but smaller here
- 2 to 3 (6 ounce) bottles Elmer’s Glue in clear
- About 1 cup warm water
- About 1 tablespoon glitter or confetti (if desired)
- Toys (if desired)
For this project, we used:
Note: Glow in the dark glitter would also be very fun.
How to Make a Star Wars Sensory Bottle:
- Empty one bottle of glue into the bottle.
- Fill the empty glue bottle about half full with warm water (about ¼ cup) and seal with the lid. Shake well to combine the remaining glue with the water. Pour into jar with glue and shake or stir to combine.
- If you are adding glitter or toys, add part of the glitter and toys into the glue mixture.
- Seal the jar and shake well. If the glitter or confetti does not move easily, add more warm water. If the glitter or confetti moves too quickly, add additional glue. Continue adding in layers with the glitter and toys until you achieve your desired effect.
- When the contents of the bottle move according to your preference, seal the bottle and glue the lid closed to avoid spills.
- If desired, cover the lid with duct tape or additional decorations.
