Ocean in a bottle

Today in science we made an ocean in a bottle.

We watched and described how the waves looked.

How to make an ocean in a bottle

What you need:
An empty bottle with a lid
Food colouring
Vegetable oil or Baby oil
Glitter (optional)
Super glue

1. First fill the bottle up to 60% with water
2. Add 2/3 drops of blue food colouring and shake the bottle (make sure you put the lid on first).
    You can also add a pinch of glitter at this point if you like.
3. Next, pour oil into the bottle, but do not fill it right to the top. Put the lid on tight.
4. Finally, put the bottle on it's side and move it to see the waves.
