A Shark Sensory Bottle is the perfect way to celebrate Shark Week with your kids. My husband and I look forward to watching Shark Week every year. Granted some of the shows may be a little scary for young children, but once they go to bed it’s binge time for the grown ups.
Get the kids involved in the Shark Week craze by making a fun and harmless shark craft.
This craft is incredibly easy to make and the stunning sparkling colors are appealing to even the adult eye.
With only a few supplies and easy steps your family can make a Shark Sensory Bottle.
How to Make a Shark Sensory Bottle
Empty water bottle with label off
(Tip: Use Vegetable Oil and a paper towel to scrub off residue. Then, use a sponge with water to make bottle non sticky)
Glitter (Blue or Silver)
Shark Stencil printed on heavy card stock paper
Print shark template on card stock paper. Trace stencil on gray foam paper. Cut with scissors and set shark aside. We decided to draw an eye using a permanent marker.
Pour blue glitter glue in empty water bottle. We used half of the glue bottle. When we filled the bottle with the entire glue bottle it made it very dark and hard to see the shark. Remember, the less blue glue you put inside equals lighter water making it easier to see the shark.
Fold or roll the shark to be able to fit into the bottle. Push through the bottle. Close with bottle lid and shake the bottle to mix.
Consider hot gluing the water bottle top to ensure it doesn’t come off. Nothing could be worse than having exploding blue glue glitter on your nice carpet.
Are you excited to watch Shark Week like we are? Let me know how your littles like the shark sensory bottle!
