We made these beautiful Earth day discovery bottles (also called glitter globes) earlier in the school year but I saved the photos to share with you during our Earth day unit. And besides, as you know, it doesn’t have to be Earth day to celebrate the earth…
To make the Earth day discovery bottles (or glitter globes), we gathered:
- One empty water bottle per child (A baby food jar would work too)
- Silver glitter (fine glitter really works best)
- Plastic yellow gems (stars)
- Plastic blue beads (earth)
- Small pitchers of water
- Blue food color
The bottles we used are called Aqua Pod water bottles which you can view here too!
The children began by adding their own glitter to their bottles…
Then the children added one blue bead and one yellow star gem…
And next, the children added water to their bottles and a few drops of blue food color…
Once all the ingredients were added, the children added the lid to the bottle on top which the teachers hot glued in place later on…
Thank you to Mrs. Lois, one of our really cool grandmas, for planning this activity for us!
