Water Bottle Craft Search and Find Game

Busy Bottle Water Bottle Craft Search and Find Game

Keeping your child distracted and having fun can be a challenge. This easy to make search and find game will keep them busy in the car or sitting in the waiting room. A simple water bottle craft game is easy to put together with things you have around the house. You can make this bottle game now and be prepared for your next doctor’s visit or long car trip.

You will need:

  • Empty Drink Bottle -Washed and Dried (It’s important for this craft the bottle is completely dry so the rice won’t rot)
  • Bag of Rice
  • Lots of tiny trinkets from around your house. (Make sure there are no sharp edges on any of the items to keep from puncturing the bottle)
Gather all your items and lay them out and make a detailed list.Type or hand write the list of items to attach to the bottle later for the game. Here are a few ideas for small items to add to your search and find bottle game:

  • Small Legos
  • Buttons
  • Coins
  • Paper Clip
  • Guitar Pick
  • Small Silk Flower
  • Eyelets
  • Straw (clipped to be short)
  • Rubber band or Hair band
  • Dried Bean
  • Scrap Paper
  • Chipboard Letter
  • Gemstone
  • Small Spool of Thread

Use lots of different weighted items to keep them from all gathering in one spot of the bottle. Add a few items at a time and pour in the rice. Roll a piece of paper to help funnel in the rice. (this really helps the process go faster) Make sure to leave about an inch at the top of the bottle so the rice will move easily so the treasures can be exposed. Once everything is inside, secure the lid. A few drops of superglue will do the trick, so you won’t have a mess in the waiting room or your car. Attach the search and find label so your child will know what to search for. If your child is older you can make it fun by setting a timer, or only telling them how many items and seeing if they can find them all without the list. Will they find them all? It’s harder than you might think. Try doing different themes and keep them searching on your next road trip.
