About Discovery Bottles
Discovery bottles are amazing sensory tools for helping children practice self-regulation. They provide an appropriate amount of weight for “heavy work,” which is very calming. They provide sensory experiences for sight and sound as well. And, of course, they are just beautiful! For more sensory bottle ideas, head on over to the post about weighted discovery bottles for very active students. These rainbow discovery bottles are based on an idea from Preschool Inspirations.
These are “Magic Two Ingredient” bottles with items from the Dollar Store.
Experimenting is Fun!
The bottles in the classroom started at the science center. The students quickly noticed how they looked with light shining from the window, so the next logical step was to get out the light table!
Pushing the bottles together made a very satisfying feel and sound!
Building towers is great practice for motor skills and planning skills.
Discovery bottles are so visually appealing. They are perfect for kids who need a calming sensory experience.
