Discovery bottles AKA science bottles are something that I thought would be a fun way to teach my child scientific principle. They are easy to make and are very entertaining.
- Encourage observation skills
- Explore the concepts of predictability
- Explores scientific concepts such of cause and effect and properties of objects
- Improves thinking skills
Having older children help make the discovery bottles can be even more fun and will help them understand the scientific principles even more.
Most of the materials that are put in them I bought at the dollar store. These can be made for very cheap and they will last a long time.
This one is thick and the glitter an objects move through the gel very slowly.
