How to make space in a bottle

What you’ll need…

Glass bottle or jar with secure stopper
Food colouring in different colours
Water
Cotton wool
Pencil
Eco-friendly glitter
Cup

Step 1

Fill about a third of the bottle with water. Then add a few drops of food colouring.

Step 2

Pull your cotton balls apart and push them down into the bottle with the pencil until the liquid is all soaked up.

Step 3

Now sprinkle a layer of your eco-friendly glitter on top of the cotton wool.

Step 4

Add another layer of cotton wool to the bottle. In a separate cup, mix up a different shade of food colouring with some water and slowly pour it over the cotton wool until it’s soaked in.

Step 5

Repeat steps 3 and 4 until your bottle is full. Fasten the stopper, and ta da – space in a bottle!

TOP TIP

Experiment with different colours and the amount of layers!
