    My Elementary Resource students loved to play with these when their work was finished! I might try making some with small objects that represent each students’ interests/ favorite things. Thanks for the great ideas!

  3. Have you tried these with say mineral oil to create a slower movement of the beads and oht er heavier items in the bottle?
    I tried these tonight and added just a bit of oil, the extra fine glitter I added seems attracted to the oil. lol
    also if you add color add just 1 – 2 drops of food color.
    Any more and it gets too dark to see the objects inside.
