Sensory bottles and Shakers
As part of our work on the senses, we made shakers and sensory bottles. We experimented with lots of different fillings for the shakers including stones, pasta, rice and beads. We each chose the filling that we liked the noise of best and used our shakers to accompany the song Old MacDonald Had a Band. The sensory bottles were great fun. We added water to the orb beads and watched them expand before adding them to a mixture of water and clear glue. We have really enjoyed watching the beads move slowly through the liquid and have found it very calming. We made extra ones to keep in the classroom.
