This one was a bit more labor intensive than the other activities I have posted, but it was still pretty easy. I took some old drinking bottles and filled them with all sorts of things for the babies to look at. They really had a good time with this.
The first one I filled with some water, food coloring, and dish soap. The babies like to shake it up and make it all foamy.
The next one is filled with rice, beans, and pebbles. I think this one may actually be their favorite. They love to make noise.... and well this does just that.
The third one I made I put in a few drops of purple glitter paint, some sequins, and filled it up with water. You can't see the sequins very well, but when you shake it you can see them swirl around inside. All the glitter is so swirly and it is really fun to watch. This one was my favorite. I think older kids would like this one more because it really is neat to watch, but it didn't really hold the babies interest.
