Eye Spy Bottle


I finally got around to making the photo cards that goto our eye spy bottle. I confiscate all the small objects that come in some of the girls toys. Originally it was for choking hazard and now it is because they end up everywhere or in the vacuum bag. I photographed them and printed them out on card stock and then laminated them with contact paper. Punched a hole and looped them together. (You'll notice I need more rice for the bottle.) Edit: I try to subtly reinforce teaching color by grouping similar colored objects together.



Tip: glue the lid onto the bottle...unless you want to find the contents of your eye spy bottle all over your floor.

Great idea! We have a ton of those teeny tiny toys too. There never seems to be any shortage of those!

I've been wanting to make one of these! Love this idea, and gluing the lid is a good tip.

brilliant idea to take the little things from the kids toys. There are so many little parts that otherwise end up in the vacuum or trash after you stepped on it once too many times

I've seen these made before but I have yet to be able to accumulate enough stuff to put in said bottle. Fun stuff and love the loose division by color.
