- a large plastic bottle with lid
- scissors (adult supervision will be required)
- a strip of cotton
- a small plastic container
1. Cut the Bottle
Ask an adult to help cut the plastic bottle in half. Use the scissors to also make a slit in the lid.
2. Add a Strip of Cotton
Insert a strip of cotton through the slit in the lid. This will work to wick moisture. Screw the lid on the top bottle part.
3. Add Water
Add some water into the base part. Then, put the top bottle part upside down into it, making sure the water level covers the lid and the cotton wick.
