DIY - Alphabet I-Spy Bottle

I wanted to make an Alphabet I-Spy bottle for a while.  I just didn't want to spend the extra money on the letter beads.  But, I found a package of letter beads at Michael's on clearance for $1.49. Jackpot!

Supplies Needed:
Plastic bottle rinsed and dried- I like gatorade bottles
rice - you can use white rice if you don't have time to color it.

*You can hot glue gun the lid in place, if you are concerned about your little one opening it*

You can use anything with the alphabet.  Print something from online, write the letters or type them out.  I received this 8x10 alphabet in one of our Citrus Lane boxes.  I glued it to a piece of card stock and laminated it. 


  1. My girls love I-Spy bottles. The sounds and looking at them. I bet your little ones would like them!

  2. What a neat activity! Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. This is awesome! Thanks for sharing! I am pinning it now!

  4. I keep coming back to this project. I need to just get the items and do it! I don't have things like hot glue guns or laminator, but I think it will be a fun one for my kids!
