Easy I Spy Bottles - Perfect Weekend DIY for Kids


Making your own I Spy Bottles has never been easier! I have put together a step by step tutorial so that you can make your very own. These I Spy Bottles are perfect for road trips, quiet play, classrooms, busy bags and so much more. The best part is, you can make them for kids of all ages! Use bigger trinkets for younger kids and smaller for the older ones.

You can make these I Spy Bottles using items you probably already have at home. Get creative with your trinkets! If you are having a party or working on a lesson, you could give them a theme. Use all animals and ask your kids to find the farm animals, the jungle animals etc. When taking a road trip, use items that can be found along the way. There are no rules!

The possibilities are truly endless with these I Spy Bottles. I can’t wait to see what version you come up with!

Fill your jars with a little bit of rice then add a few trinkets. Repeat this process until you reach the top.

End with the rice about an inch from the top. This will allow room for the rice and trinkets to shift around, making them searchable.
