I made these a while back --- thought they would make a good project for kid's for the summer....

Ocean In A Bottle

What you'll need:
A 2-liter soda bottle
Blue food coloring
Mineral oil
Fun stuff to put inside the bottle

1. Fill a 2-liter soda bottle 3/4 full with water. Add a few drops of blue food coloring.

2. Drop in some brightly colored objects, like sequins, miniature plastic sea creatures and tiny shells etc.....

3. Fill the bottle to the top with mineral oil. Screw the cap back on tightly. I would glue the lid back on, if it's for young children.

Holding the bottle sideways, rock it back and forth to make your own ocean waves.

I have also used water and soda bottles --- there is such a variety out there. You can find clear bottles with a larger 'hole' to put in larger items in.
