Step 1: Make the Ocean Floor

Wash and remove the label and cap from an empty soda bottle. Fill the bottle 1/3 full of sand or dirt. You may want to use a funnel to prevent sand spillage.

Step 2: Add the Seashells

Add an assortment of seashells or rocks on top of the sand or dirt. Finding the rocks and seashells is an activity within itself and just as much fun.

Step 3: Add the Ocean Water

Fill the bottle 3/4 full of water. Again, it’s a good idea to use a funnel to prevent water from being wasted or spilling.
