Sand Find It bottle

I had been very excited make a "find it" bottle for a while so i begun by collecting tiny treasures from around the house. I colour photocopied them and laminated it into a card. Wooden letters that spell out Tara's name, buttons, coins, marble, paperclip, really anything that will fit in a bottle easily.

I asked Tara to put all the objects into the bottle. I found this particular bottle at coles/woolies. It was "Preshafruit" brand in the fridge section but any wide necked bottle that is smooth and clear. I thought this small size would be ideal for a travel version to keep in the car and have a bigger one at home but after Tara handling it, i think this is a perfect size for her and i wouldn't go any bigger as it would be awkward to maneuver
Then she added some sand to make it approx 3/4 full. You can also use coloured or plain rice. We used a little superglue around the neck of the bottle and screwed the lid tightly to make sure it wouldn't come off

Then the fun begins...Choose a treasure from the card....

Turn it, roll it, shake it till you FIND IT!
