Bible Sensory Bottles 1

Sensory/ discovery bottles are popular around the world with babies and toddlers (and even preschoolers) and can be used in a variety of ways; to look at and explore, to prompt a story/ song/ concept, sorting, knocking down etc. Here are a few ideas for sensory bottles relating to Bible stories, they can be used to simply explore independently or with support or to accompany the story getting each bottle out in turn (for preschoolers you could number them so they can retell the story)
  • Black tissue paper
  • Neon sticks (cracked and put inside – will last few hours)
  • Glow in the dark stars and star sequins
  • Soil
  • Sand
  • Silk flowers (ones cut off a hawaiian leis from pound shop are great)
  • Water, oil and liquid soap bubbles (add blue food colouring)
  • Feathers
  • Water and little fish beads/ sequins/ tiny plastic ones
  • Tiny plastic animals (put some sand in also)
  • Hand and feet buttons/funky foam cut outs and googly eyes
  • White tissue paper (symbolise rest)

  • lolly pop sticks and match sticks (Noah built ark)
  • Bottles filled with objects of a single colour (as above) in rainbow colours
  • Rainbow bottles (fill with objects of rainbow colours e.g. beads, pom-poms, match sticks, buttons, feathers etc.)
  • Tiny animals
  • Water oil and blue food colouring
