Patriotic Rice Sensory Bottle

Whats Needed:
• Empty Bottle – one with no ridges generally perform best (Sparkling ice, Voss, some water bottles)
• Rice
• Patriotic objects small enough to fit through the opening or bendable to maneuver through. we used Poms, beaded necklace pieces, and buttons
Goo Gone Spray Gel


– Find your perfect bottle to use for and peel the label off. Use Goo Gone or soap to get the adhesive off the bottle. Wash it all out with warm soapy water. Let the bottle dry completely before adding any object.
– Fill the bottle about a fourth of the way with rice. Add in a few of your Patriotic objects.
– continue to layer your bottle with rice and objects until you get about 1-2 inches from the top. Leaving this space will allow the objects to mix.
– Once you are happy with your Patriotic Rice Sensory Bottle be sure to use a hot glue gun or gorilla glue to seal it closed.
