Sugar Aunts: Super Simple Recycled Sensory Jar

Super Simple Recycled Sensory Jar

There are so many ways to make sensory bottles.  Today I wanted to share a super simple sensory bottle idea that is perfect for those calm-down moments we all crave.  You know the times we all have when a child (or mom!) is just needs to refocus and calm down.  It's a time when many of us fidget, bite our nails, or seek out sensory input.  This sensory jar is an easy way to calm down and it's an easy recycled jar to make, too.

To make this sensory jar, cut the yarn into 6 inch lengths.  Pour a glob of glitter glue into the bottom of the mason jar.  Add the yarn and fill the jar with water.  At this point, you can add extra loose glitter, but if you don't want that added cost, it's an easy step to skip.

Be sure to add glue to the jar lid at this point to secure the lid.  Close the jar and give it a shake.

Watch the falling glitter from the glitter glue and the swirling yarn as you and your child calms down.

**We used a glass mason jar for this activity.  You can substitute the glass for a recycled plastic jar for safety reasons.  Use your judgement regarding what is best for your individual children.
