Little Colour Bottles

Shampoo bottles

Have you ever stayed in a hotel and wondered what to do with those little shampoo bottles. Usually I don't use them and leave them behind. This time I took them home with me. I thought they would be good in an open and close activity for Otis one day. But for an activity for him now?? How about some little colour bottles.

The labels were sticky and difficult to remove. I put a little food colouring and water in each bottle. I suggest gluing the lids on to avoid any spills. I have only put the lids on tightly as I want to reuse the bottles later.

Otis is now sitting so comfortably at his weaning table. He only has one table so he does many of his activities here also.

I let him play and explore. I'm not teaching colour names or presenting a lesson.

The idea of the colour bottles is from the eighth month post by Meg at At Home with Montessori. Meg, I re-read these posts almost weekly and almost as frequently make one of your ideas. 

Otis started playing in and out. All bottles out. Now all bottles back in. 

I am thinking of other uses for these little bottles. I could add some rice to make shakers. Or fill each bottle with something different rice/dried beans/seeds maybe??
