Finley loves anything that isn't technically a toy and anything that is loud. This activity meets both of her requirements!
You will need:
An assortment of things to fill them
Optional:Strong glue/hot glue
We used empty spice bottles because they fit perfectly in toddler hands but you can also use empty pop/water bottles. Simply fill the plastic bottles with whatever you have. We used mini M&M's, rice, pasta, and dry beans. Please use caution! All of these items are choking hazards to supervise your children. For extra safety glue the caps on the bottles and check them often to ensure they are tight!
With the larger items (pasta, beans, M&M's) we counted them as we put them in...math activity, small motor activity, and a gross motor activity all in one!
Shake Shake Shake!!!
Talk about how the bottles sound. Which one is loud? Which one is quiet?
Can you shake it slow/fast? Can you shake it high/low?
