There is no better way to investigate natural materials than to go on a nature walk and end your trip with a fun nature based art project.
Here are steps on how to put together your first nature sensory bottle. Also the perfect project for little learners to explore the world around them.
Nature Inspired Sensory Bottle
Time: 20 minutes Ages: Toddlers + Difficulty: Easy
- Glass bottle with lid (Can also use plastic, but we opted for glass for better transparency.)
Kids love hands-on nature time and collecting treasures.
Step 1: Prep bottle
Peel the label off the bottle, rinse well and clean the outer surface.
Step 2: Collect nature in small amounts
Go on your nature walk and add the natural specimen found by your little one. Filled the bottle with tap water, and seal it. (Can use glue or tape.) Isn’t it awesome how the bottle magnifies the specimen inside?
In this activity, kids learn how to:
- New discoveries about the natural world.
- Learn about native plants and seasons.
