"Look and Find" bottles are great entertainment for long car rides! They are simple to make and you can make them small or large depending on your needs. The concept is simple, fill a bottle with rice and place a bunch of small objects into the bottle too.
Provide the child with a key of what to find in the bottle. The one I made is rainbow themed so in addition to the rainbow rice, I included objects that were all of the colors of the rainbow. I also chose to make a key using photos so that it can be used by both a younger or older child.
Approximate Time: 20 minutes
Note: You can add an extra challenge by including a few very tiny items which require more effort to find! :) Have fun!

Here is a great craft for kids to make and use for passing time.
Approximate Time: 10-20 minutes.
If you want you can paint the outside of the jar or add a list of things that are in the jar for your kids to look for. Warning: It's addicting, you'll be looking for things inside the jar yourself!
