Supplies Needed for this Grinch Sensory Bottle
To make this sensory bottle grinch themed, we simply filled it with green glitter and bobbles and a few big red hearts!
Here’s what we used:
- A (16 ounce) plastic storage/sensory bottle (we got ours at Michaels, but you could get a case of VOSS water bottles and make a bunch for really cheap!)
- 2 to 3 (5oz) bottles of clear Elmer’s glue
- 1 cup of warm water
- 1 tablespoon of lime green glitter
- Large heart button (We found some cool ones at Walmart for Valentines day last year or you could use large red heart confetti )
- Green heart confetti
- Red heart confetti
- Green aquarium rocks
Of course, you can get as creative with the fillers as you like! You don’t have to use the grinch themed items we used.
Getting creative and finding items are the house that will work, is perfect for this craft!
I do, however, suggest using Elmer’s glue. I have no idea why, but Elmer’s glue works so much better with slime and sensory bottles!
How to Make a Grinch Themed Sensory Bottle
To make this simple sensory bottle, follow along with these instructions:
Start by emptying one of the Elmer’s glue bottles into the bottom of your sensory jar.
Now pour some warm water into the Elmer’s glue bottle and seal on the lid.
Shake any remaining glue to mix with the water. (No waste here!)
Them pour this into the bottle with your glue and shake well to combine.
Now you can start adding in your glue and toys or baubles into your sensory jar.
Now seal the sensory bottle and shake well. If the glitter and confetti don’t move easily you can add more warm water.
If they move too quickly, you can add more glue.
Keep adding in layers of glue, water and more glitter and toys until your sensory bottle is full and functioning how you like.
If this is for younger kids, I suggest gluing the lid on to avoid spilling.
Isn’t it just captivating!
My kids are seriously in love with all sensory bottles. And this Grinch one is no different!
