Magic Color Alphabet Discovery Bottle

Thank you for sharing!

This alphabet magic color discovery bottle is so cool! The colors...just so neat! I can't wait to make one for my kids!

We’re playing with the alphabet a lot lately. But I found that my pretty Alphabet Gel Mat didn’t travel super-well for the kids in the car…but when you make the same recipe for a bottle…ooooh! And, suddenly you have a Magic Color Alphabet Discovery Bottle. Best freaking idea ever.

I don’t know why I didn’t make this before making the mat. I’ll be honest, both are cool, but the bottle is much more to-go version. And because the Magic Color Alphabet Discovery Bottle doesn’t let the colors mix…the kids seem to be mesmerized for a long time with either version. Kind of brilliant, either way. LOL!

So, since this is a SUPER easy idea, I totally expect all the little toddlers to be running around with it next week. Right? Drop me a picture of your Magic Color Alphabet Discovery Bottle on Instagram–be sure to tag me @NerdyMammaRocks and I’ll try to re-share!
