Play with a Tornado in a Bottle


This is a fun gizmo for those who like to keep their hands busy.  They can be bought at toy stores or novelty shops or for those who like a project, they can be made using old soda bottles (click here for instructions).  The advantage to the purchased versions, at least in my eyes, is that it’s sometimes easier to get them to form a twister than the homemade one, but maybe I’m just not very good at making them!  Either way, it’s a fun way to stay occupied and spark some conversations about past storms or just weather in general.  Just ask Dorothy and Toto!
