Saturday Do-It-Yourself – Ocean in a Bottle

Summer is here, the kids are out of school and now it is time to keep them entertained! I found a video of a fun project for the wee ones that you can do at home: Making an Ocean in a Bottle. There are only 4 items needed:
– empty water bottle
– water
– baby oil
– blue food coloring
(optional hot glue or duct take to seal the bottle tight)

I thought this would be a fun way to save some memories if you have a trip to the beach planned over the summer. Have your child scoop up some sand and seashells to add when they make their own “ocean” when the return home. Check out this video for all the details:
