How to Make an Alphabet Sensory Bottle

1. Add 26 or more letters into the sensory bottle. We made sure to choose different colors.

Add Leters into Bottle

2. Fill the remaining bottle almost full with clear corn syrup. Leave about 1 oz of space at the top for water and a bit of space for air (so that the water and corn syrup can mix).

3. Fill the remaining bottle with water (approximately 1 oz of water). Also make sure to leave a little bit of space for air.

Add Water into Bottle

4. Add the lid tightly onto the bottle. For extra protection you can hot glue or super glue the lid on so that it cannot be removed. Always supervise when kids are using the sensory bottle.

Mix the bottle gentle back and forth to mix the water and corn syrup together.

There will be some bubbles that form but after a day the bubbles will clear.

Sensory Bottle with Alphabet Letters

5. This sensory bottle is very relaxing as the letters gently float to the top when flipped. Some children will want to just observe the letters. You can also use this as a calm down sensory bottle.

For learning, print or write out the alphabet for kids to find each letter in the bottle. We have a free printable on our I Spy Alphabet Sensory Bottle activity.

For older kids, you can ask kids to identify the letter and the corresponding letter sound.
