Sensory Sound Bottles
My youngest mindee loves musical instruments and basically anything that makes a nice noise. As an opportunity to move away from the normal instruments I made up some bottles using everyday objects, all of which create different sounds and let him have a play. Contents included lentils, popcorn, pasta and sugar.
When he saw the bottles, the different colours immediately caught his eye and he crawled rapidly towards them. He gently picked one up and, realising it made a noise, gave it a good shake.
He went through all the bottles trying out the different noises and watching the contents moving as he did so. We used this as an opportunity to engage in singing some of our favourite rhymes and he was keen to give his new found instruments a shake while he danced!
