Friends, let’s celebrate the USA with these gorgeous sensory bottles!  These patriotic sensory bottles can be used for the 4th of July, an American symbols unit, voting or election time, or for President’s Day.  Make sure you check out my USA themed Math and Literacy Centers  also to build on your theme!

Sensory bottles can be used to help students calm down in the safe place or examine in the science center.  They can be explored by themselves or at the light table.  Sensory bottles are easy to make and even more fun to make when you invite the students to help. Be creative and have fun!
