Oil and Water Color Discovery Bottle

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

Only use Gatorade or G2 bottles for the sensory bottles they are a heavier plastic so they hold up better and keep a unison look so everything looks good. They come in different sizes you can find smaller ones for small hands if you need to.

Make sure to ALWAYS seal your bottles securely! I cannot emphasize this enough. Unless you want your bottle opened and the contents poured out. SEAL IT… with glue. Duct tape can be peeled off by a determined kiddo. Glue is much harder for them to open up.


Oil and Water Color Bottles
DSC_0719Fill your bottle with oil. Any oil you want. I used vegetable oil but you could use baby oil. etc.

DSC_0720Drop liquid water colors in to the bottle

Weather Bottles
These go along with my theme bottles I do every year. They go with our weather unit. I aslo use them when we talk about season. There is a sunny bottle, Rainy bottle, Cloudy bottle, snowy bottle, and a fire storm (My daughter made that one :))

The Sunny Bottle consists of water with some blue food coloring. Then the kids found the biggest yellow pompom they could find for the Sun. There is also gold glitter my kids wanted to put them in for the sun shine rays.

After awhile it separates even more to several different layers
