Eye Spy Bottle

  • clear plastic bottle (water bottle, 20 oz soda bottle, etc)
  • dry (uncooked) rice
  • 10 (or more) small objects to find (our swap bottles included a square of felt, elbow noodle, colored noodle, colored fishing rod, blue bead, wooden tooth pick, seashell, tiny silver hat, colored flower light bulb, colored tooth pick, and a grooved bead.)
  • photo of objects so you know what to find
  • hot glue gun

How to Make:

First lay out all items that will go in the bottle and take a photo of them so that you know what objects are in the bottle to find. Fill bottle 2/3 with rice. Add objects to bottle. Hot glue the lid onto the bottle. Shake to mix the objects and the rice.

How to Use:
Shake and turn the bottle to find all the objects. For older kids, one person can call out one of the objects and the other person can try to find it. Set a time limit on finding it or time how long it takes to find it. Try to beat your time.
