Submarine in a Bottle12:00
Ethan absolutely loves submarines, they are such fascinating vehicles, I think it's his dream to go in a real one someday. He is always drawing pictures of submarines and telling me all about the periscope and all of the things that they can do, so today we decided to make a submarine in a bottle! I love slow moving sensory bottles and calm down jars and have been enjoying making them for the kids to play with and explore, so this seemed the perfect way of combining the two loves.
What you'll need:
- a clear plastic bottle
- clear hand soap
- blue food colouring
- blue glitter glue
- mixing jug
- funnel (optional)
- fish shaped confetti
- a yellow foam sheet cut out of a submarine
I looked into many different methods of making these slow moving sensory bottles and calm down jars before making my first one (these Easter sensory bottles) and found that many of the methods involved materials that weren't available in the UK, so I use clear hand soap, which may not be the easiest to work with (because of the bubbles) but it is something that people should be able to find anywhere. So I use approximately 1/3 water to 2/3 clear hand soap to make a nice slow moving sensory bottle. I start by adding the water to the mixing jug then adding the blue food colouring and blue glitter glue and getting Ethan to whisk them all around and make the water nice and blue like the sea.
