I Spy Name Bottles

To help with name and letter recognition, I made these I spy bottle. Start with rice, empty water bottle, and letter beads.
Fill the water bottle 3/4 of the way full. That way the letter beads can move around.

Spell out the child's name. I used my nephew Kyle's name.
Put the beads in and tighten the lid. You may way to glue it shut.
On a piece of paper, write out the child's name.
Every time, he (or she) rolls the bottle around and finds the letter, they get to circle it.
Keep rolling the bottle around.

When all the letters are circled, you can start again!

Hmmm...This gives me an idea for my son who's a little older and learning to put sound with letters. You would put different lil' toys in, and have the first letter of each toy (like T for turtle and c for cat) and see if they can find all the toys with a certain sound (like say...see how fast you can find something that starts with a "T").
