Jingle Bell Magnet Exploration and Discovery Bottle

I saw this idea on Pinterest, and just couldn't resist the allure of a two-for-one activity that required less than a minute of prep time and was totally free. What could be better than that?!

I grabbed an empty bottle we'd been saving for just such an occasion, and filled it with a handful of different sizes and colors of jingle bells, red and green stuff, and some little plastic Christmas light-bulb beads.
 And that was all it took to make a really fun Christmas discovery bottle for Sharli to play with. To make this fun and perpetually interesting for Erik, all I had to do was hand him his magnet wand (which was nowhere to be found the day I was taking these pictures). He spent a lot of time exploring the effect of the magnets on the contents of the bottle.
Since I couldn't find the magnet wand the day I took  these, I put a strong magnet on the lid of the bottle just to show you how fun the magnets are when they interact with the bells. You definitely want to give this one a try!
