Are your kids Shopkins fans? Mine certainly are! While all of my kids love playing with Shopkins, they aren’t really age appropriate for little man (10 months) and we are constantly losing them around the house. This DIY Shopkins Sensory Bottle was a fun way to solve both those problems! My kids love using the calm down bottle as a way to display their collections, plus each packet of Shopkins comes with a collectors list making them PERFECT for I-Spy!
My absolute favorite thing about these though? They are so easy my kids could make them!!!
Items Needed to Make a Shopkins Sensory Bottle

How to Make a Shopkins Sensory Bottle
Y’all, I am not kidding when I say these are ridiculously easy to make. Simply open up your water bottle and add water no more than half way up. The more water that you use, the faster the Shopkins will fall. Then add in your Shopkins, fill to the top with corn syrup, and add your lid. You can glue the lid shut if you like. We did not, I just had my hubs screw it on super tight.
We filled our sensory bottles with an even mixture of corn syrup/water and it took our Shopkins about 5 minutes to move from one end of the bottle to the other.
It was mesmerizing to watch them suspended in the corn syrup!
The neatest thing though was that not all the Shopkins would go in the same direction! About half of our Shopkins would sink while the other half would float!
My kids LOVE these!
