Sensory Bottles for Infants and Toddlers

by Kelly MillerSensory Bottle: Floating ABC

I have been saving water bottles, pop bottles and juice bottles for several weeks with the plan to make sensory bottles for the 8-month-old boy I am currently nannying.  This weekend my 8-year-old daughter and I had a blast making sensory bottles .....
