Kayleigh's Crafts - Make Your Own Sensory Treasure Bottle


Today we're making a sensory treasure bottle!

To make these yourself, have a look at our YouTube video or follow this step-by-step guide.  

    You will need:

    • Clear Bottle or Jar (must have a lid)
    • Rice
    • Small Items
    • Food Colouring (Optional)

    Step 1:

    Gather your small items together. You need to make sure these can fit into the neck of your bottle or jar. Make a list of all the items you are using so that when you find them, you can tick them off. We used things like toys, coins, keys and jewellery like rings and brooches.

    Step 2:

    Fill your jar with rice about 1 inch or so. Depending on the size of the neck of your jar/bottle you may need to use a funnel.  

    Add your first small item and then cover with another inch or so of rice. Repeat this process until your bottle/jar is full and you've used all your items. 

    Leave a small amount of space between the rice and your lid so you can easily move your  

    Step 3:

    Go treasure hunting! Move your bottle/jar around in your hands, shake it and look at it from all angles to find each item. As you find something, tick it off your sheet. 


    If you'd like to colour your rice, add a few drops of food colouring to your rice and leave to dry before beginning the above steps. You could make your jar with one colour of mix in a variety of colours and make a rainbow bottle/jar. 

    When you're done... 

    Have a think about other things you can use instead of rice, how about porridge or flour? Will it be harder to find one item or lots of items? 


    We would love to see your finished crafts!
