Discovery bottles give kids a fun, learning activity that encourage observation and thinking. You can make your own discovery bottles with a recycled water bottle, colored rice, and small objects – we used buttons.
1. Color white rice.
2. Select small objects for the bottle. Record or photograph in case you want to give your child a list to find.
3. Funnel the rice into the bottle. Add the small objects.
4. Fill 3/4s full.
5. Done! (and you might want to hot glue the lid onto the bottle . . . less mess.)
Fun, aren’t they? Not only do my kids love playing with these, they enjoy making them as gifts.
Any other discovery bottle ingredients you suggest?
