WFMW: 2-Liter Treasure

June 3, 2008 at 9:26 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

I have to give credit to my friend Kelly for this one. While at dinner last week she told us of this great idea for turning a 2-Liter bottle into a treasure hunt.

You’ll need:

  • Empty & dry 2-liter bottle
  • Super glue
  • Rice

Lots of little things you can fit in the mouth of a 2-liter (paperclip, toothpick, bead, AA battery, nail file, q-tip – be creative and hunt around the house.

Write down a list of everything you put in the 2-liter. Alternate filling the bottle with some rice, adding a few things, shake it, add some more, etc.

The treasure hunt is on! You can do it a couple ways. Give your kids a certain amount of time and see how many things they can find. Or give them a list of 5 things (from your master list) and see how long it takes them to find them.

Can’t wait to try this with my kids.

Back to Shannon’s for more WFMW ideas.

    That’s a great idea! We have an “I Spy” pillow that was a gift and my daughter loves it–it is a little soft pillow filled with rice and trinkets with a clear window and then there is a list attached of the things that are hidden in it. I was trying to figure out how to make another pillow…but I like this idea even better. Yay! Thank you so much!

    I’m trying to think of some of the things that are in our pillow. I know there is a small hair rubberband, a paperclip, a little jingle bell, and I’m not sure what else.
