We love creating different sensory activities and this one is one of our favourites! It’s a great activity to learn how water and oil don’t mix and the magical effect they have when they’re inside the bottle. We thought we would create a video tutorial to demonstrate just how easy they are to make! You can watch it below.
What you’ll need –
- Plastic bottle
- Baby Oil
- Blue food colouring
- Super Glue (to be used by adults)
Half fill your container with water, add colouring, shells and then fill the rest of the container with baby oil. Very carefully glue the lid back on to ensure there are no spills!
This is a great item for kids needing a little quiet time, it’s so relaxing to watch the waves move inside the bottle.
