Gg is for Glitter Bottles

During our Center time we made glitter bottles.  We filled the bottle half full with water then mixed two colors to create a new color. Many, many children chose to make purple, but there was a couple of green and one orange. We added vegetable oil as a second layer and then a teaspoon of glitter.  Put on the lid and shake away.  This mixture layers quickly into oil and water and is quite fun to watch.  When we finished  each child created a page for our new book about glitter bottles.  They had to tell which two colors they mixed and what color resulted.

Glitter bottles all in a row.

  1. I love your glitter bottle idea! It seems like a mix between snow globes and lava lamps!
