Sensory activities engage kids in many ways – through sight, smell, touch. This helps them learn and retain ideas in a better way. My kids love anything that glows in the dark. In fact they rush to close all doors and windows, keep it inside bathroom with all lights turned off so that they can watch it glow. So let’s make a Glow in the Dark sensory bottle. It’s easy and will just take a few minutes.
What you need:
Transparent bottle or Jar
How to make it:
Put a spoon of water beads into a bottle and fill it with water ( the beads will expand to ten times their size within a few hours)
Break the glow sticks and put it inside the bottle
During the day put the bottle in light so that it absorbs light
Just wait for the beads to expand and fill the bottle. Your sensory bottle is ready
Secure the lid of the bottle tightly and always do this activity under parental supervision as the beads can be a hazard for young kids. Kids will be excited to see the colorful beads glowing in the dark. Ask your child about the different colours that s/he can see. Kids add a lot of new words to vocabulary when they describe how an object looks, feels or moves.
