I have been staring at these back to school erasers on my desk for weeks. I wanted to do something fun with them. I was thinking about a sensory bag but still was not sure. Then when I saw Preschool Inspirations Ocean Discovery Bottle I knew what I would do with them. A Back to School Sensory Bottle for the kids to play with.
Back to School Sensory Bottle

Supplies/what we used:
*Voss Artesian Water Pet Bottles – 6 PK – we bought 2 bottles at grocery store.
*La Looks Gel #10 Wet Looks 20oz (Clear) (3 Pack) – we bought 1 bottle at store
*Back to school erasers from Dollar Tree. You could look at Target or Walmart to try and find some like this. Here is a link to apple erasers-
US Toy – Miniature 3/4″ Apple Erasers, Ages 3 Years & Up (1-Pack of 144)
How to make/what we did:
I filled the bottle up little by little with the clear hair gel. After adding a little gel I would put the erasers down on the side and push it down the bottle with the help of a paper straw. The straw came in handy to help move the erasers around. I repeated this until the bottle was full of hair gel and erasers.
Now we had a fun back to school sensory bottle to look at. This was fun for all 3 of my kids. They range from 2-6yr. My oldest was playing I spy with it. It is great for the youngest to go over colors, example: the apple is red. You could even count how many buses are inside the bottle.
The back to school sensory bottle was a hit at my house. Now if we could just keep putting off going back to school I would be happy, lol.
