Sea Shells I Spy Bottle

We make many I Spy bottles, but since summer is here, I thought I would share the sea shell one we made today.  I like to have the kids help me choose and put together the bottles so they have some ownership over them.  They love to do it.  I got these shells at the craft store.  We found some "summer" items, a lemon, lime and watermelon eraser, foam flower, fish and sea star, a button and a glass marble.  I made up a picture card for them of all the things they put in the bottle.  We filled it about 3/4 full, put the lid on and gave it a couple turns.  Then they got busy searching for the things inside.  So fun!

Loved your 'summery' twist on the I spy bottle and featured you at our site, MPM School Supplies Blog. We were sure to give idea/photo credit, as well as a link to your blog, but we'd love for you to take a look at it and, if there are any problems, we'll be sure to take the feature down immediately!
