25 Fantastic Discovery Bottle Ideas

Today’s post is ALL ABOUT SENSORY BOTTLES! I have to confess, I didn’t really “know” about sensory or discover bottles, when my kids were little… I wish I did. They are so so soooo simple to make and yet provide hours of entertainment and fun.  Luckily, I can still play “catch up”, as I think […]
