I recently pinned a blog post about making Time Out Bottles.
I don't want to have a Pinterest account full of things I'm never actually going to do, so I'm challenging myself to DO some of them.
We don't really practice "time out" in the traditional sense, but they looked like a fun project, so I decided we could make some anyway.
I bought some drinks at Target that came in SMOOTH bottles.
We took the labels off. This works best if you warm them up with hot water, and use a little Goo Gone to rub off the residue.
Squirt a tube or two of glitter glue into your bottle, and add some FINE glitter (regular glitter is pretty, but it's too heavy for this project).
Add a bit of hot water, and shake to mix.
(Asian hat optional. Yes, he walked Hannah to school wearing that this morning.)
The idea is, when you shake it, the glitter swirls around all pretty, and it takes a few minutes for it to all settle down to the bottom again. You're supposed to add CLEAR gel glue until you get the right amount of time, so you can hand it to your child and tell them they're in time out until the glitter settles.
But we just like to look at them!
