A sensory bottle is simply a clear bottle filled with items that stimulate the senses - and children’s curiosity. GSLP teachers feature a variety of sensory bottles to explore at their classroom Science and Discovery Centers. Mrs. Stockton’s Early Pre-K 3 classes made these autumn-themed bottles by first dyeing pumpkin seeds green with food coloring, water, and a bit of vinegar (much like dyeing Easter eggs). Once those were dry, the kids worked in teams to fill the bottles with fall-themed items: acorns, leaves, cranberries, the green pumpkin seeds, and more. This project incorporates art, science, sensory exploration, and fine-motor skill development.
