It’s a “find me” bottle!

Also known as, busy bottles or sensory bottles, at least that’s what I am told. Who knew?!

Apparently all of Pinterest.

Oooooops!

Anyway, our Little Miss loves playing I Spy. And there are only so many times in row this Mommy can guess “something green”.

SOOOOOOOOO…

Insert a “find me” bottle!

Want the quick how to on this cool busy bottle that’s a mommy free I spy?!

All the supplies you need are…

  • rice
  • a bottle
  • fun things to hide inside
  • a list of what they need to look for

That’s all you need!!

{quick crafts with BC} step one

First, find your bottle and make sure it is cleaned out.

You don’t want anything growing in there…

Then collect the little things you want to hide inside your bottle. I chose some bigger beads, some charms, and some little beads with letters on them that spell out Little Miss’ name.

These beads are so fun! And I had them in some of her favorite colors!

Next up, start layering your rice and the little objects until the bottle is mostly full.

I used dyed rice because I had some and I thought it made it look more fun!

Next step is making a list of the objects your littles need to find. I used pictures for mine; but you can just write it out too! Or don’t make a list at all and just let them be surprised by what they can find!

Lastly, attach your list to the bottle! I laminated mine and then attached it with a rubber band.

In the words of Cuddle Bug, Easy Peasy!
