Fun with Bottles


Empty bottles in your recycling bin actually make some pretty fun toys! In Toddler Bowling, kids roll a rubber ball toward the plastic bottle "pins" (fill them with dried beans if you need to add some weight). In Bottles and Lids, tots simply explore matching a variety of bottles with their correct cap and screwing/unscrewing the caps. You can also just fill empty plastic bottles with fun combinations of materials for little ones to shake and observe. Be sure to glue on the cap!
