Create an I Spy Bottle
Create an I Spy Bottle for relaxing quiet time play for toddlers. We love the I Spy books and the picture books by Walter Wick, so we felt inspired to make our own artistic version of these popular themed books.
In this craft project, you will fill a clear plastic bottle with rice and small toys and objects and seal on the cap securely with glue. Young children can rotate and shake the bottle to find something new every time as the rice pours over and conceals some objects and reveals others. The sound of the rice pouring around the bottle is relaxing and pleasurable.
Try challenging each other to locate certain items that you know are in that bottle somewhere and rejoice in your discoveries. Young children will also get lots of practice in identifying and naming objects that are familiar to their world.
