Discovery bottles are easy to make.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Discovery bottles are always fun for toddlers. I Spy bottles, telephone bottles, and customized water bottles are a great tool for learning new things.
An empty clean water bottle can make a great discovery toy for kids, too. Simply make a hole in the water bottle lid with a screw. The hole should be a bit larger than a toothpick.
Provide a bowl with a handful of toothpicks and ready is the fun game. Supervise the toddlers when handling the toothpicks. Let them have fun finding the opening and letting them be amazed at the accumulated toothpicks.
The bottle with the toothpicks will sound like falling rain when shaken.
An oilcloth is a really great thing to have around specifically for messy play. One can get really creative with this and paint on it or play on it with shaving cream and water.
Other ideas include letting the kids drive their toys cars and trucks through paint and onto paper. This activity creates very cool looking art.
Moon dough is a fun medium to play with and explore new textures. It’s fun to create and get messy with. Painting on a canvas by using old marbles or balls is another ingenious idea. Simply place paint and a canvas inside a box and roll the balls around to paint.
