Step 5: Adding rice and objects to the bottle

1. Use the funnel to add an inch of colored rice
2. Add 2 or 3 of your small objects
3. Add another inch of rice
4. Repeat process until you have added all of the objects
5. Make sure you leave an air gap in the neck of the bottle to allow the rice to move around, the bigger the air gap the easier the scavenger hunt will be.
I think this is a great idea. I am looking for baby shower games. I am going to use clear baby bottles, then the mom-to-be can take the bottles home.
This is great! Thank you so much!!
I am going to do it in my classroom and put objects in the bottle that have a certain vowel sound or beginning sound! My kids will love this! Thanks for the idea.
Yay, Got all the materials- So gunna try this. Thanks. :D
This is an awesome idea. One question though, why glue the cap on after? wouldn't that make it nearly impossible to open??
you do not want to open the bottle once you have put all your objects in. so you dont lose any thing.
I believe the point is to not open the bottle, and thus making it actually challenging. Otherwise you would just dump it open...and you're done. Now, if you wanted to get those things out again...that might be another story. =P
make one with metal objects and use a magnet to help 'find' them. <br />
Fantastic.&nbsp; Like magic.&nbsp;
<strong><em>Um cool? I think they sell this... But good idea to make your own</em></strong>!<br />
Sideways gravity!&nbsp; How did you do that?! ^^
&nbsp;magic dear friend magic!
This would be great to do with a 1 or 2 liter bottle for parties. More objects.
You know I recon I could adapt this for my Scouts... Great I'ble welldone :D&nbsp;<br />
I have a store bought (cue&nbsp;rotten&nbsp;tomato throwing) version of this game, but this looks much more fun because you can put in anything you want. Your instructions are very easy to understand and precise. Great!
&nbsp;we have made some with clear wine bottles as well, it gives it a little more class&nbsp;
i actually saw a game like this in the store once... thought it was a huge waste of money because i figured you could make your own LoL the way the game came though, was with one of those little sand timers and cards with the objects on them and you would pick a card and find the object. I guess whoever found the most objects in that time won.
We made the same thing, except I filled mine with oats. That's funny, I thought is was a thing only my family did.
I love this game. The pictures are so clear and the instructions were easy to follow. This would be a great game to use for a party. Each person could have a bottle and they could race to see who could find all the things first. Then they could take them home as party favors. These could also be used as the center piece on tables for a party as icebreakers. Thanks for the great instructions!
Sounds like a great kids' party game!
thanks for the feed back, we made a clear wine bottle version for xmas gifts for all ages. its one of those games that can challenge everyone
Is there a game that can be played with this?
The game is intended to be played by yourself. The object is to find all the objects that were put in the bottle. You could also try timing yourself so that you can do it faster each time. Or you can make multiple bottles with the same objects in each and race against someone else. thanks for the question, enjoy!
