Directions

  1. First, fill the plastic bottle with all of the pom poms. I used one bag that weighed 0.52 oz from Bullseye’s Playground at Target. You can find assorted colors of pom poms from your local craft store or online (see supplies).
  2. Add the rainbow confetti into the plastic bottle.
  3. Fill the bottle with water, leaving about 1/4 inch space at the top so there is room to shake.
  4. Finally, hot glue or super glue the cap to the bottle. Shake and enjoy!

  1. Hi! Just wondering, with the added glue, does that mean the bottle cannot be reused? (sensory items switched out later)

    1. Hi Jiovanna,

      I always reuse my bottles. 🙂 I strain the materials then toss it. Rinse the bottle with warm water and soap. Hope that helps! 🙂
