Wave Bottle

Here's a really simple craft Logan and I made today while at his play group. He helped by choosing which food coloring and which glitter to use. In less than 5 minutes, you can make your own wave bottle with stuff you probably have at home already. The end result is a bit like a lava lamp, which is sure to entertain kids of all ages.
  • plastic bottle with lid
  • water
  • oil (cooking or baby)
  • food coloring
  • glitter
  • hot glue gun (optional)
  1. Fill bottle 2/3 full with water.
  2. Add enough oil to fill the rest of the bottle.
  3. Add a few drops of food coloring. (We used 5 drops of blue.)
  4. Add some glitter.
  5. Screw lid tightly onto bottle.
  6. Shake bottle to mix contents and enjoy.
  7. If desired, use hot glue on the inside of the cap and then screw lid onto bottle for extra insurance against curious little hands getting it open!
