Besides recycling I have never really known what to do with empty glass bottle, until I came across this idea - A Sand Art Bottle. It's really easy to make, takes very little time and great for any age of kids.

Time: 20 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Empty clean and dry glass bottle
Coloured sand
Thin skewer
Paper funnel or any funnel to fit the mouth of the glass bottle.


Method
First make a paper funnel in the shape of a cone
Then cut off the base of the cone to the desired size.
Fix it with sticky tape.
Start by filling the glass bottle with the coloured sand.
Make different coloured layers.

To make a design, stick the skewer in and poke the edges of the sand layer.
Keep repeating till you reach the top.
Replace the lid to keep the sand in.
Decorate your room with it.

Where can you find colored sand?
Grenvillegal@gmail.com

Hi Grenv, coloured sand can be bought online very easily or if you have trouble finding it then another option is to buy some coarse rice flour and colour it with food colouring of your choice. Dry the mixture and use it in place of sand.
My variation this activity I use cooking salt and coloured chalk blend together on coarse sand paper .When you have combined the two together the salt and your desired coloured chalk tip on to a piece of Recyled paper create a funnel gently layer up as many colour combinations to fill your bottle The blending is done using your fingers I have even given it a name "Rainbow in a Bottle" Lee Hirsh
