Sensory Diet Activity of the Month: Two liter buddy (Bottle Buddy)

How to make a Bottle Buddy
Take an empty two liter bottle and fill it with sand, beans, rice, anything with weight. You can also have your child decorate the outside of the bottle to their liking. This bottle can be used for transitions throughout the day. They can carry it to and from the car, school, or while you are running errands. The extra weight provides your child with the proprioceptive input needed to help organize their nervous system for more desired behavior.

Bottle Buddy’s are useful for children who need heavy work/organizing activities. Please click on the article of the month "Guidelines for Heavy work" for more information explaining heavy work and how to implement it into your child’s life. Please consult with an Occupational Therapist regarding the specific needs of your child.
