      BRILLIANT! We paid $8 for a much smaller version and I think the actual I Spy game like this at Target is $20 or $30. Must do before our next road trip. I Spy Bottle

      I-spy bottle: I can see this being awesome for a road trip! 1. make sure bottle is clean and dry 2. lay out all your small items/toys and take a picture of them 3. print this picture out and laminate it if you can 4. start filling bottle alternating rice with a few toys until bottle is about 3/4 full - you want to leave some room at the top so you can shake and move the rice around the bottle 5. use a hot glue gun and glue the lid on! best eye spy game!

    Homemade lava lamps. Vegitable oil, a about 3/4th of the water bottle, then water. 10 drops of food coloring. Then take a alkaseltzer tab and break it into 4 pieces. Drop one in at a time and wait for each to dissove! So cool! I cant wait to try it!

    Time out/calm down bottles- original source. If child is too excited or angry or agitated, give them their bottle. They shake it up really well & sit somewhere quiet. Once the glitter is all settled (~5 mins) their time is up. If they try to mess with the bottle, it will only make their time out longer.
