r is for rice bottles

my kids were glad to help drink 26 bottles of gatorade and vitamin water so i could have wider-mouth bottles.

alphabet rice bottles 0809 - 13

the preschoolers help me fill bottles with rice and then i hide something inside correlated to a letter.  i tape the lid on with colored duct tape and write the letter on the lid.

so far there is one little apple hidden in the A bottle

a plastic baby, a bird and a button hidden in the B bottle

plastic cows hidden in the C bottle

dice hidden in the D bottle

an egg and an elephant hidden in the E bottle

i’m thinking feathers in the F bottle, blades of grass in the G bottle, horses in the H bottle, ivy in the I bottle, jacks in the J bottle…on and on.

    a good one for g is green grasshoppers. :] i know michael’s sells the bags of bugs and there are usually grasshoppers in those. walmart, sometimes the dollar store and teacher supplies stores may also carry them. I like the idea though. It’s very creative and can be used for a variety of things!
