Suspended Heart Discovery Bottle | Simple Sensory Bottles

It is no secret that we love sensory bottles. I am not sure if it the time of year or the fact that our toddler is starting to really get into discovering new things, but we are obsessed lately with sensory bottles all over again. I think in the last week we have made four different bottles. The other day we shared our newest calm down jar and today we will share our newest simple sensory bottle, a suspended conversation heart discovery bottle.

Remember how I said my toddler has been obsessed with “discovery” lately? Well, that is code word for “dump everything on the ground, squeal and run. While I know its developmental for her to be doing these things, it doesn’t make it easier to deal with.

Our latest round of simple sensory bottles has been the most entertaining of them all.

How to Make a 2 Ingredient Heart Discovery Bottle

I promised you a simple sensory bottle. This one is just that. All you need is the syrup (it has to be clear to make it as awesome as ours, but you get the point) . It is so easy, even my toddler did this entire bottle herself.

After cleaning out your bottle, you can get started by adding in the clear corn syrup. (Leave some room for the hearts).

Once you have both items in the jar, leave a tad bit of room for the air and the hearts.

    The bottles you used for the heart sensory bottle, did you buy them empty or did you purchase a drink and recycle the bottle? If so, what was the drink? I’m working on some more sensory bottles for my 2 year old preschool class! Thanks!!

      These were a 100% pure juice, I will check the brand. We used the juice and then recycled the bottle.
