we used a big open tub (intentionally awkward for one child to hold alone), a shoe box sized clear tub with a lid, and even smaller metal lock box.

we dropped an egg or two in, squirted in some paint and made those eggs move!

and patience.  in a class of 14 and only 3 containers, there was a lot of cooperation (and cheering)!

with it being so close to halloween, we used orange (pumpkins) and green (vines) to mesh the themes.

the seemingly indestructible tub with lid lasted two days of shaking and tossing and even kicking.

in fact, it was 2 classes later that we noticed a crack had formed.
