Kids crafts; How to make an I-SPY Bottle, I made these for our Daisy Petal, "using resources wisely" since my Daisies are not all reading/writing yet, I had them draw a picture of what they saw, I used 10 items. I saw a post about these and the maker said she wished she had taped the lids on, so I did with duct tape :) We used this game as a time filler as some daisies get done with their crafts faster than others.

Fizzing Rocks Activity. This activity also has a GREAT theme of "You can't tell what a person is like by how they look. You have to get to know them on the inside." Love! ma. Life with Moore Babies: Poppin's Book Nook #1 - Princesses, Knights, Castles.
