I SPY...





     I've seen these all over the Internet lately and decided it was time to make one for my kids.
 I searched the house for small things to put in the jar, and I got a pretty good collection. . I put this together in no time at all . It cost me next to nothing to make - I already had everything I needed to make it on hand.
These “I Spy” jars are great fun for a wide variety of ages.



A must for the diaper bag. 
Hannah likes using the jar as a rattle, and Emma(after many unsuccessful attempts at opening the jar) enjoys identifying and counting the objects she finds.

Here is how you can make one:
What you'll need:

1 plastic container(jar,bottle)
small items/toys
rice
hot glue gun





Lay out all your small items/toys and take a picture of them
You can print this picture out and laminate it if you want.




Start filling the container alternating rice with a few toys until is about 3/4 full -
you want to leave some room at the top so you can shake and move the rice around.



Unless you want a large mess - use a hot glue gun and glue the lid on!
Give the jar to your kids with a picture of the items in it and have them find all the items.

So shake shake shake to find new treasures!:)
