We made these for our students when I was a preschool teacher in Japan, and the kids just loved them. It is a super simple craft project, but sometimes that is just what you need.What you'll need:
*plastic water bottles with the labels removed
Fill your water bottles with water leaving about 2 inches of empty space.
Cut the ribbon into 3-4 inch pieces.
Add glitter, sequins, and ribbon to the bottles in interesting combinations.
You can also add a tiny bit of food coloring to the water if you like, or add a few tablespoons of oil to make bubbles in the water.
Glue the lid onto the bottle, so your little ones won't be able to open it and make a huge mess.
Play time! These water bottles are so pretty to look at, but you can also use them to talk about color, floating/sinking, density, and states of matter. I took them to the park today and they were a hit.
