Super Simple Steps
These have to be easy to make if I can do it!
1.Pour sand and shells into clean bottle.
2.Mix a drop of blue and green food coloring into 6 cups of water, then fill the bottle halfway.
3. Add a pinch of glitter.
4. Fill the rest of the bottle with oil, leaving a little air space at the top.
5. Run a bead of hot glue around the bottle opening and screw the lid on quickly.
Maybe oceans aren’t your thing… You can put glitter in the bottle along with your choice of coloring and water and have a great timeout bottle or glitter timeout bottle. Place any type of little toys and trinkets to make it even more personal.
