Follow these directions to make a fast and simple noise maker for any occasion. Depending on the treasures you use to fill your bottle, this noise maker can also double as an 'I Spy' game.

  • Age Guideline: All Ages
  • Time Required: 10 minutes
The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances. For best results, read through all of these steps before you start making this craft.

Let's begin... First gather the supplies you need:

Materials Needed:

  • Small Soda or Water Bottle
  • Rice
  • Beads, Charms, Glitter, Sequins, Other Small Items
  • Small Kitchen Funnel
  • Craft Glue

Start out by cleaning the bottle well and removing the label. Make sure the bottle is totally dry before you start this project.

Place the end of the funnel into the bottle and start filling it! Start out with about a cup of rice. You can add more or less if you like. Then, start adding any small items you would like to 'search' for in the bottle. It can be beads, charms, small toys, etc. Make sure if young children are helping you that they do not put any of the small items in their mouth. You can also add some sparkle to your bottle by adding glitter or sequins.

Once you have everything you want in your bottle, spread some glue around the threads on the neck and replace the cap tightly. This will prevent the cap from falling off or being removed by small fingers.

In the bottle above, I added several shaped beads. They are shaped like a variety of items such as dogs, boats, hearts, starts, etc. If you add special shapes like this, your noise maker can also be a game. Challenge your child to find specific shapes or colors by rolling the bottle around to reveal hidden treasures.
