Ellie really enjoys the I Spy books and when we were at our local toy store I saw a neat I Spy bottle but I am cheap and didn't want to pay $15 for it. I saw this great post and her I Spy bottle looked just as good as the one at the toy store so I decided to make one. It was easy and fun. Ellie and I colored rice by putting rice in Ziplocs with a splash of vinegar and food color and let it dry for a few hours or in my case a few days:) Collect little trinkets to put in your bottle and take a picture of them so you know what you are looking for. Last step is to spoon the rice and trinkets in the bottle (make sure you leave enough open space so you can move the rice around) and hot glue the lid on. Wasn't that simple?
I think I am going to save this for our next longer car ride!
