Are you looking for fun and stimulating sensory bottles to make for your child? Ninja Turtle sensory bottles are a great way to incorporate sensory stimulation into your child’s play!
Ninja Turtle Seek and Find Sensory Bottle!
Our sensory creations started with us making sensory bins.
They are all a big hit with my kids! They love not only playing with them but helping me assemble them as well.
This got me to thinking that it would be nice to have sensory activities that the kids could use not only at home, but while traveling and in the car as well!
So we created sensory bottles!
I think that sensory bottles will be a great addition to our Sensory Toy Bag for traveling!
Sensory Bottle Ideas
My son is obsessed with Ninja Turtles!
I mean he can tell you about every Ninja Turtle bad guy that has ever existed!
As a mom of boys I know more about Ninja Turtles than I ever wanted to know! lol Do you know who Muckman is? I do!
Actually all of my kids like to play with Ninja Turtles, even the girls:)
They set up the Ninja Turtle sewer lair, pull out all the Ninja Turtle action figures and bad guys and play together for hours!
It’s one of the few things that all four of them love to play with together:) It’s pretend play at its finest;)
So I knew that I had to make a Ninja Turtle sensory bottle! A Ninja Turtle sensory tub will be coming soon;)
How To Make Sensory Bottles
Another great thing about sensory bottles is that they are so easy to make!
Ninja Turtle sensory bottles take less than five minutes to assemble!
That’s right, five minutes to make something that will not only be fun and beneficial for your children, but that will give you peace and quiet in the car! 😉
Totally worth it! lol
We take four different sensory bottles in the car so that each child can have one to play with. Then after a certain amount of time everyone switches so that they can play with a new one. It’s a great way to keep everyone entertained:)
To make Ninja Turtle Seek and Find Sensory Bottles you will need:
And that’s it!
DIY Sensory Bottle
First add your ninja turtle micro figures to the bottle.
Ninja Turtle micro figures are mini Ninja Turtles and ninja turtle bad guys. They are only about an inch long and fit perfectly in these sensory bottles.
If you are using bigger Ninja Turtles than the micro figures you will need a different bottle with a wider opening than the ones that we used.
I will say though that the micro figures probably work best for seek and find. They hide much better in perler beads than a bigger figure would.
How To Make a Sensory Bottle
Next add your green perler beads.
We added them using a funnel. This helps to keep the perler beads from running everywhere!
As you fill the bottle stop frequently to shake it up. This will help to disperse the ninja turtle figures throughout the perler beads.
Stop adding perler beads when they reach about 1/4 to 1/2 of an inch from the top of the bottle. You want to be sure that there is enough free space in the bottle for the perler beads to move when you shake it.
All that’s left now is to screw on the lid!
Wasn’t that easy?!
Now you have your own Ninja Turtle seek and find sensory bottle!
I hope you and your child enjoy the Ninja Turtle sensory bottle as much as we do!
