Hello friends! Today we attempted to make some pretty galaxy bottles and jars! They turned out awesome and the kids kept wanting to make more with different colors. I encourage you to do this science experiment with your own kiddos!
Start by emptying a water bottle and stick a couple cotton balls in. Use a pencil to poke them flat. Shake a generous amount of glitter on top.
You will need a cup for each color. Fill half with water and put about 3-4 squirts of paint in each. Mix until the color appears. Pour it on top of the cotton balls. Continue this process layer by layer with different colors! Kids can experiment what happens when you use more or less cotton balls on each layer.
Finish the bottle by gluing the lid on so kids can’t open them! These are great for working as calm down bottles, too! In the picture above we used a recycled pickle jar.
