This afternoon the older children enjoyed helping me make some sparkly discovery bottles
I set all the equipment we needed out on the table.
Equipment we used;
Jug filled with water
selection of food colouring
Funnel to pour water into bottle
Teaspoon to measure food colouring
Selection of different coloured glitter
Some star sequins
The boys took turns to carefully fill the bottle with water up to half way.
We then added 3 teaspoons of glycerine.
The boys held the spoon while I poured some on the tablespoon, they then tipped it in to the bottle.
We then added the food colouring to the bottles, again the boys held the spoon while I put some on and poured in.
The boys then added the same coloured glitter to match the food colouring to the bottles and the sequin stars.
Most important part, we put the lid on secured with super glue and electrical tape to make sure no accidents happen!!
The children then enjoyed playing with them, tipping them about and rolling them to watch the water, oil and sparkly bits mix.
We then invited the younger children to enjoy playing with them.
