Galaxy Bottles 2 Ways

This fun process-based project is a gift that keeps on giving. Enjoy the beauty of color-mixing (and glitter!), and then appreciate the therapy that comes with watching these bottles whirl and swirl. Seriously, even I found a few deep breaths watching the glitter bubble explosions. We’ve shared two versions of this project, one using colored water and baby oil, and another with cotton balls taking center stage. Let us know which one you like best in the comments!
