Sensory Jars for Toddlers

“My favorite color is glitter”

Sensory jars are quickly becoming my favorite thing to throw together at a moments notice to keep a toddler's interest. I made two this morning with some things I had in the art closet for a rainy day and they were a hit (especially during patching time)!

I made the first jar using a four pack of pretty glitter that I found at Target. I filled an empty voss bottle with 3/4 bottle baby oil, 1/4 water, a sprinkle of pink powder food dye (hint it will only dye the water not the oil), and finally I added a pinch of each color glitter. It turned out SO PRETTY! 

I ran out of baby oil for the second jar, so I simply used water and sequins. A rainbow collection of sequins (also found at target) was the perfect thing to make a magical sensory jar that sparkles in the sun. I used about a quarter of each color packet to create a simple, pretty, glittery, sensory jar. Lucy LOVES this one the best! 

These jars are a little heavy and Lucy needs help shaking them so I added a six pack of small voss bottles to my next peapod order. I think a collection of tiny sensory bottles will not only be pretty but will be just the right size for Lucy.
