There are 101+ ways to make these fun learning bottles!
Ours was very easy to make. We used a clean plastic juice bottle, rice, and beans (not shown in photo). And here are some other items we used:
a small wooden heart and a popsicle stick
a tiny pink plastic baby and confetti pieces
a plastic hair clip, a long plastic snake, small “jewels”, a clear plastic dice (or die for singular), and confetti
a miniature metal saxophone and lighthouse and more confetti
a plastic dragonfly clip, snowflake, toy dog, hanger, and even more confetti
a little plastic hair brush and spider–and you guessed it–confetti
a tall plastic giraffe and fish, a small American flag, and yes–I have lots of types of confetti
a small plastic lizard and pokey bug, a tiny plastic clothes pin, and a foam heart and giraffe (fooled you, no confetti)
small plastic shoe, another pokey bug, a fuzzy pompom and–oh no–more confetti
another plastic lizard, a tiny plastic pig and frog, a foam camel, and a rattly plastic tree and caterpillar (oh and not confetti here either)
a plastic ball, penguin, kangaroo, another “jewel”, and the final piece of confetti
Yes, we have lots and lots of items in our I Spy Bottle, but it makes it so fun to discover different things all the time! My 3 yo grand daughter is intrigued by it and spends several minutes looking at the different items. 🙂 When she is a bit older she can look at the photos of the items and see if she can find them all or even write a list of what she finds. I purposely used various colors, types of animals, and a few unusual items to make it interesting as well as educational.
Let’s see the I Spy Bottles you have made!
