The Final Product & Review

I found this project to be easy enough that children of any school age could easily do this, with some steps requiring assistance for younger children. My kids really enjoyed watching the bottle come to life as they added each ingredient. They also decided to use gold glitter instead of silver like in the original post, which I found to be just as pretty. The experiment itself did a good job of showing the effects of gravity and it worked well alongside a science lesson plan. I also love the sensory use that this can double as. I highly recommend giving it a try for your class or as a weekend project with your kids. It's easy to make and a great visual to use in teaching.
