Make Your Magnet Bottles

The first step is to empty out all the mouthwash. I grabbed a jar and saved it for future use. Or you could just have really minty breath today :) Next, remove all the labels.

Then it’s time to pick your bottle ingredients for your magnetic learning center. Pick a mixture of magnetic and non-magnetic materials. I tried to do a mix of silver and colorful items too. Kids initially will think all the metal like ones are magnetic and the colorful ones aren’t. But whoa, aluminum foil and pipe cleaners blew some of the kid’s minds because they didn’t do what they expected.

I also added our cool Magnetic Field Sensory Bottle which is totally mesmerizing, even for adults. Click over for the magic ingredient we used in this bottle.

These are great for free exploration and you never know what will happen. My daughter ended up making them into towers and dominoes and tried to knock them down with the wand. And still no mess! If you want to drive some additional science learning, you can ask them to make a hypothesis about which ones will stick to the magnet before they start playing.

Now for the gratuitous happy kiddo shot :) Sometimes I like to remind myself that my blog is kind of my photo album and it’s OK to add pics that remind me of the good times we had with a project. Thanks for understanding.
