WOW the last few weeks have been pretty crazy. I had a great time in Florida with my family and friends, but I am glad to be home and back to my normal routine again. Vacations can be exhausting!
Before we left I made a few things to help keep the kids entertained in the car. These Find It Bottles proved to be great entertainment for both girls on the way there and the way back. My oldest had a lot of fun finding all the items in the bottles. My little one enjoyed seeing the stuff in the bottles and shaking them to make sounds (no worries the sound is not that annoying).
The hardest part of making these is finding stuff to put in the bottles. At first I thought I would never find anything small enough to fit in them, then I got creative and realized that I actually have a TON of small items that would fit. Just remember that you do not need to only add toys, any small items will work like buttons, pasta, and beads. There is a picture below of some of the items I used.

Clear Bottle (we used ICE water bottles)
Lots of Small Toys
Small Photo Laminating Sheet
Yarn or String
Decide what toys you are going to put in your bottle and lay them out on a sheet of white paper and take a picture.
Print out the picture and use some photo laminating sheets to protect it.
Fill your bottle with the rice and small toys, we added rice then added toys then more rice and repeated till the bottle was almost full (you want to leave room in the bottle so it can be shaken up).
Once you have all your stuff in the bottle use your glue gun to glue the top on (this will keep the kids from opening it and getting rice all over)
Punch a hole in your protected photo and tie it to the bottle.
This will let the kids know what they need to find in the bottle
