our children made ours.. some interesting ideas and items in them..

 

most popular are

coloured water and bubble bath.. in a large bottle.. looks just like a small drop of liquid in the bottom until you shake it...

 

baby oil and blue coloured water .. equal quantities to fill the bottle.. move from side to side and looks like sea moving.. shake and..

 

iron filings and a magnet .. just make sure the bottle is not too thick.. which was our initial problem...

 

Then also use different bottles.. there are some out there with hand washing soap in which have a picture in them.. ours had fish and we added glitter and glycerine to it...

 

make a scented one by putting holes in the bottle and having pot pourri inside

 

soo much fun..

 

only limit is the imagination and that of the children..

Hi,

These all sound and look very exciting. Does anyone have experience of using them in a Reception class? Was thinking that I could start with my full time children (13 out of 30) designing and making soem and then maybe widen it for rest of class. My class this year has a high proportion of SEN or potential SEN children and as most of them go at lunch time it might be easier to do this in a calmer afternoon. The designing and making could link into creative/ physical/ writing instructions even if I scribe for most of the children.

Any further ideas or comments would be appreciated

made them many times with nursery so can't see reception children would find it a problem
