Sensory bottles are used to help children (and adults) calm down when they become upset or anxious.  The idea is to give the individual a safe object on which to focus their attention, thereby diffusing anxieties within.  It’s kind of like an interactive I Spy book inside a bottle.  Grab an empty bottle and fill it with water and tiny objects that will interest your child.  It really is just about that simple.  Read on for 6 suggested sensory bottles that will calm upset kids.  You may or may not catch me using bottle #3 to calm down on rough days in my classroom…
