Today’s Creative Tuesday is about Discovery Bottles (also known as Bottle Babies, Sensory Bottles and I Spy Bottles).
Here’s what other blogger moms have to say about Discovery bottles:
Deborah of Teach Preschool has a whole collection of Discovery Bottles Ideas: “Whether made by you or by your students, the possibilities for uses of discovery bottles in the preschool classroom are endless. From building language and literacy to exploring math and science. See and save all the ideas for discovery bottles found in this fabulous ABC collection of Discovery Bottles.”
Anna of The Imagination Tree: “These are cheap to make, long lasting and can easily be adapted to create exciting and intriguing sensory play experiences for little ones.”
Jackie of The Happy Hooligans: “The Hooligans have been hauling, heaving, carrying, pushing and sliding their bottle babies around for days. They love ‘em! And I’m betting your little ones will too!“
Sun Hats and Wellie Boots: “he bottles seemed a great opportunity for more seasonal discovery, so we collected four empty water bottles, & a selection of items from around the house & garden & got creating…”
The Fairy and The Frog: “If you’ve not come across these before they are basically bottles with things in to discover! “
Bethany of Happy Homemaker Me: “Discovery Bottles are just about one of the best things that you can give to a little one to play with. The various sounds, sights, and feels that come from holding them and shaking them will make your munchkin squeal with delight.“
I personally think Discovery bottles are great! We enjoyed making one with water, oil, food coloring, beads and cut up straws! The children enjoyed making and shaking them. They didn’t want to let them go!
Try making a Discovery bottle with your child/student and let me know about it!
