The Fun of Gatorade Bottles
(This is the first time I've attempted to shoot a video with my camera, so it isn't of the best quality. Maybe if I try doing this a little more often it'll get better. )
Isabella and Jake love to play with empty plastic bottles. Empty 2-liter bottles would probably have to be their favorite, because the lid end is so easy to grip and carry around in their mouth. I've also let them play with Gatorade and orange juice bottles when empty.
When Isabella was little, we'd put some loose change inside an empty 2-liter and let her play with it. She loved to pick it up and shake the daylights out of it, or pounce on it and watch it scoot around the floor. (Isabella wasn't much of a chewer until Jake. Toys lasted alot longer back then.) Since getting Jake, however, she has learned to chew off the lid and the fun ends alot sooner as a result now. She's still alot more delicate and dainty about it than her brother, though. Jake is a master at getting the lid off a bottle, no matter its size, and he always looks a little sad when I come to take it away. The fun never lasts very long for Jake because he's so quick to get the lid off.
(Note: I do watch my dogs when I give them these bottles, and they get thrown away as soon as the lid comes off, or if one of starts biting off plastic in their mouth.)
