Friday:Play!-I Spy Bottles
Take a plastic bottle–I found the Bolthouse Juice bottles work the best, they are the perfect size and have no ridges or indentations on them.
While adding the objects to the bottle we kept a list going. When we used a sticker we just rubbed whatever substance we were going to fill the bottle with (sand, rice, beans) on the back side so it would not stick to the edge of the bottle.
Then we added rice, beans, or sand (or a mixture to the bottle) to the bottle (fill it up just enough so that when you twirl the bottle around you can find the objects). Note: If using sand make sure the bottle is absolutely dry, I even took a blow dryer to it, or it will make a big mess for you.
What a perfect craft to do with any age! I have seen the I Spy fabric squares, but I have issues with sewing and I thought this would be much easier for a 2 year old to help with.
When we are done with the next bottle of carrot juice here are some ideas we thought up:
A bottle with alphabet letters in it, to help the kiddos recognize their alphabet.
A bottle with numbers in it.
Bottles to go along with each season.
