How to Make a Wave Bottle

Save

A wave bottle makes a great toy and educational tool. Using supplies you have around the house, this kid-friendly craft only takes about 10 minutes to make. Teachers can use this in their classes as a hands-on demonstration of the mechanics of both waves and tornadoes.

Things You'll Need

  • Clean, empty soda bottle with cap
  • Food coloring
  • Water
  • Baby oil
  • Fast-bonding glue
  • Using clean water, fill a soda bottle about one-third full.

  • Add a few drops of the food coloring you desire and add the beads, glitter or sequins. Fill the rest of the bottle with baby oil.

  • Put glue on the inside rim of the cap and screw in onto the bottle securely. Wait until the glue dries before you turn it upside down.

  • Gently shake the bottle back and forth to make wave action. Moving the bottle quickly in a circular motion and then stopping abruptly once the water is swirling will produce a tornado or water spout effect.
