I know, almost (if not every mom) all moms will relate to my sentiment – that our little ones get tired of playing with their toys and would want new ones from time to time.

My girl would play with the toys she’s familiar with for only a couple of minutes. But once I give her new ones (that she’s not quite familiar with), they would keep her busy for longer stretches. She would explore and investigate them until she gets to learn how they work and eventually (after couple of days or weeks) get tired of playing them again. SIGH ☺

So, instead of buying new toys every now and then (not to mention, toys are pretty expensive), I decided to do them myself. Plus, she’ll learn various things from these by using her senses.

Here are a few of my DIY sensory bottles and the materials I used

This serves as a “find-the-band-bottle” and a shaker, too.

This one has nothing but soft balls. It will make babies realize that the soft balls do not produce sound.
