M has really been into learning her colors lately. Along with her color bags, I also started to make her color bottles to play with, and these have been a real hit the last few days.
I just used recycled water bottles and items I had around the house. The blue one is vegetable oil and water with blue food coloring added. The food coloring sticks in the water, and when the bottle is shaken it makes a "wave" and bubbles. The red bottle is simply glitter, a little bit of caro syrup, and water. It's like a mini snow globe. The lids are super-glued on to avoid any messy accidents. So simple and frugal to make, yet she loves to shake them up and watch the colors!
