I have to admit that I have become a bit obsessed with discovery bottles lately. I can't see a bottle without thinking about what my buddies and I might be able to do with it. I had used up all the baby oil making another discovery bottle and couldn't wait to find something to put back into the now empty baby oil bottle.
I added some Easter confetti that I had and some water. The Easter confetti sank to the bottom as I expected it would. I had already made a variety of bottles with oil, oil and water, and a water and glycerine mix. I wondered what else I could add to the water to make it different. Then I thought about salt. I added enough salt to the water that when shaken, it made the confetti FLOAT!
And when you leave the bottle alone for a while, some of the salt settles to the bottom, making the salt solution less saturated and the confetti SINKS!
I was thrilled but I didn't like how the confetti clumped together so I dumped it all out and picked out just the green flowers. The green flowers had concave petals, rather than being flat. I thought they would be less likely to stick to each other.
My new Saltwater Discovery Bottles are a little less full, but still really COOL!
My Buddies and I are sharing our Saltwater Discovery Bottle on The Sunday Showcase!
