Mr. F is getting into everything! So I decided it was time to make him some toys of his own. I have been drinking lots of Hint water lately and the bottles are the perfect size for sensory bottles! I picked up some bells and pom poms at the craft store and gathered some clothes pins and rice at home and made him 4 sensory bottles. It cost about $2.50 not including the water, but gosh it’s good water!
Mr. T is strong and curious and loves to unscrew water bottles so I added a strip of glue to the bottles before I closed them up. I don’t want to clean dry rice up off the floor!
Mr. F was having so much fun! He loved them. And he played with them for a pretty good while before he moved on to other fun things like pulling himself up on the chairs, etc.
The bells were his favorite. They still are! But they do make a nice sound when he’s playing with the bottles. Mr. T, however, can make them REALLY loud. If you have a toddler around, you may want to pick quieter bits to go inside your bottles.
And here Mr. F has moved on to climbing up the chair. Do you like our mat? It is supposed to face the other direction, but Mr. T prefers the face to talk to him before he goes outside 🙂
