Wow, it looks amazing! Come watch as we make an easy glitter sensory bottle with vegetable oil and Karo syrup.

The Karo syrup adds a really neat effect and suspends the glitter in a really nice, slow freefall in a slightly cloudy liquid. In this fun 20 min. Sensory bottle DIY video we show you how to create this project. We used three different viewpoints so you can really enjoy seeing the process take place which provides for some great video. This project can be enjoyed by babies, toddlers, and adults. We hope you and your family enjoy this new video and please subscribe to watch all of our new videos as we add them each week.

Ma’la’ki loves his sensory bottle, actually all of his sensory bottles. He has 5 so far in different sizes. Check out his channel to view the other sensory bottle projects we’ve done with him and see how he likes them.

All you need is a clear bottle or clear container with a screw-on lid, an assortment of different glitters, Karo syrup and vegetable oil, and anything else that you want to toss in but I do recommend using only glitters. I found that the Karo and oil separate from each other with the oil on top and Karo on the bottom. This created a think layer of glitters and buttons got stuck where the two liquids separated. It came out cool and it seemed that the oil attracted the small sliver glitters to the top.

The Karo at the bottom was so neat looking. I decided to put a light under the bottle which ended up reflecting off of all the glitters and in the video it show’s how the light reflections dance around the bottle as they rise and fall. Very satisfying, to watch the
glitters slowly fall to settle where they are going to finally stay and then to add light from the bottom, very neat.

I’m thinking of maybe another video. What do you think? Maybe a lighted glitter bottle. That would be cool! Comment and let us know how you liked the video! We decided to get a mix of glitters and one that I think had a big impact on the look of the sensory bottle is the long glitters. They floated so well.

Yield: One Glitter Sensory Bottle

Glitter Sensory Bottle

tada! A finished glitter sensory bottle!

This how-to, hopefully, will help you make a really cool homemade toy for your baby, toddler, or young child with things you might already have just laying around the house. Pretty much you just need a clear bottle or smaller container with a screw-on lid, some glitter, vegetable oil, Kyro syrup, and super glue for the lid.

This is a fun project for you and your child to do anytime, with minimal ingredients. Ma'la'ki has been playing with his bottle for a few days now and he loves to take it and put it in the window so it gets backlight with the sunlight and makes all of the glitter sparkles as it slowly falls and settles where it is going to stay. Honestly, I love staring at it too!

There is a way to do this right so things don't end up in a jumbled mess at the bottom. so, read on!

An extra AWESOME step is to take your phone and turn the flashlight on and set the bottle on top in the dark. move it around until the light fills the bottle.

It was a lot of fun to make and I hope you enjoy all the videos and photos on this page.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Active Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Estimated Cost: $0-$15


  • 1 Clear bottle WITH a screw-on lid.
  • Thin, but long glitter, see photos. You'll want 2-3 colors for these. 
  • Small round glitter. Not super fine just normal size. You'll want 2 colors of these. 
  • Medium sized round glitter. You'll want 1-2 colors of these.
  • Kyro LITE Syrup. Not dark, but lite syrup. The amount depends on the bottle you have to use. But basically, enough to fill half of your chosen container.
  • Vegetable oil. Again, just enough to fill half of your container.  
  • Super Glue. To bond the inside of the cap to the bottle top screw threads.


  • Just your hands and a creative mind!


  1. The first thing we need to do is make sure the bottle is cleaned and the wrapper is removed. clear bottle
  2. Now, select your glitter choices. Make sure not to overload it! The glitter will be visible but you also don't want to have it get too caught up between the two liquids.
  3. Take the vegetable oil and fill the bottle halfway. The reason we put the oil in first is that if you put the syrup is first it will stick to everything and coat the bottle and the oil won't be able to do its job of making things slick enough to slide through the syrup.
  4. Add the Kyro syrup now.
  5. Take the cap and turn it upside down. On the inside of the cap add a line around the whole cap and quickly replace the cap and tighten it being careful not to get glue on the bottle or your hands.


Like I said earlier, try placing a light under the bottle. It creates a really neat effect that reflects the light off the glitter it's pretty mesmerizing! Glitter Sensory Bottle

This is the white very nice very pretty. We had all the glitters, that’s what we did look at that it looks like a disco ball next you’re adding some oil You’re adding in the oil First because if you add the Karo syrup first everything will stick to the bottom so adding in your oil first will keep all the glitters from sticking to the bottom and that is what it looks like all mixed with the glitters in there nice and shiny

Chantel (Mom) 18:30
All right, now we’re going to glue it


You have to glue it shut

don’t want them to open it and end up trying to drink it.

So make sure you get that glue over in that

you just put the cover on.
