Ocean in a Bottle
Submitted by Karen
Collect a water bottle for each child. Have the children fill the botton of their bottle with sand (about two inches). Drop shells into the bottle and then fill with blue soapy water. Super glue the bottle lid shut. As the children shake the bottle the soapy water will look like waves and the sand will be mixed up. Once the children quit shaking the sand will once again settle to the bottom.
