      Discovery bottle w/ pipe cleaners & magnet wand - leave the top unglued since it's not messy and they will have the best time dumping it and experimenting with the pipe cleaners & magnet outside the bottle. #magnets #pipecleaners

    Great ideas here, and if you add some glycerin to thicken the water the bits move around a bit slower too.
