Alka Seltzer Blob Bottles!! - Such a great craft to do with kids! Need: 1 Liter (or any size) bottle, regular water, cooking oil, food coloring, and Alka Seltzer. Pour 3 quarters of a cup of water into the bottle, then fill the bottle the rest of the way up with your cooking oil. Next you want to wait for a little bit or until the water has settled at the bottom of the bottle and the oil at the top of it. Then pick your favorite color and pour about 8 drops of the food coloring into the bottle (let the drops get to the division between the oil and water). Now drop 1-2 Alka Seltzer tablets into the bottle and watch the FUN begin!! Once your bottle has settled back down again 30 mins- hour later just cap it and keep it, it works over and over again!!

Space in a Bottle is one of those activities that I have modified throughout the years. At first I poured light syrup in the bottles mixed with water to give it some texture. But over the years I found the kids love it just the same with plain water. Sometimes I have the my little ones draw on the water bottles with sharpies if time allows. They add 8 pom poms for planets, star beads for stars, glitter for astroids and sequences for comets. AND Blue Food Coloring
