What you need

Cleaned, dried, different coloured pulses - 3 or 4 varieties.(eg.mustard, moong dal, pepper)
Small, transparent glass or plastic bottle with lid. (empty shampoo or nail enamel remover bottle)


Recycled bottles and jar’s can be used to reduce the cost of this fun kids craft project.

Clean and dry the bottle thoroughly.

Fill the bottle tight with cleaned and dried pulses in layers of contrasting colors.

Time should be taken to fill the bottle full so that the pulses don’t mix with each other even when the bottle is tilted.

Close the bottle tight with the lid.
