Intro: Waves in a Bottle - Relaxing Toy for Kids

What ?

Very relaxing and easy to make toy - waves in the bottle.

What will be needed ?

Water & dye (watercolor for example, or food dye)

Bottle

Transparent Oil (baby oil is ok)

Step 1: Making Ocean

Making ocean is really simple ;-) Just pour the water to the cup, mix it with the paint and then pour mixture to the bottle.

Step 2: Making the Atmosphere

Now pour the baby oil to the bottle and close it very good to avoid any leaking during play

Step 3: The End - Ocean in Your Hand

That's all.It was really easy. Now turn the bottle and watch how waves are emerging.

I recommend You to watch the video I''ve attached to this instructable because pictures doesn't show how beautiful and relaxing could be the waves.

    Ha, I remember these were big in the 80's. I had a motorized one that slowly kept it moving. Pretty cool.

    What are the measurements of water/paint/ and oil? Is there a specific ratio that should be followed? You use paint or food color?

    There isn't special ratio.

    From my experiments it gives the best effect when You mix 1/3 of colourde water with 2/3 of oil.
