Glow in the Dark Ghost Halloween Sensory Bottle: Directions
1. Grab a Voss bottle out of the recycle bin.
2. Peel off sticker on the bottle. Use Goo Gone to remove sticky residue.
3. Fill Voss bottle about half way with water.
4. Drop white glow in the dark loom bands into the Voss bottle. We used the entire bag. Sensory bottles like these look best filled with loom bands.
5. Fill the bottle up the rest of the way with water. You want to fill it all the way to the top so there is no air in it.
6. Place lid on the bottle.
7. Use a permanent marker to draw a simple ghost face on the Voss bottle.
Don’t glue it shut if you know you would like to put a white glow stick in it at some point. You could even remove the glow stick when it loses its charge and change it out for another one. Easy peasy.
Sensory bottles like this one are great for calming and anxious child and for no mess safe sensory play. This glow in the dark ghost Halloween pumpkin sensory bottle and luminary would make a great decoration for Halloween parties and on Halloween night!
