We've been asking for some time to make some special bottle art. We took a trip to the beer supply store and picked out some sweet bottles, different colored caps, and a variety to grains to fill the bottles.
We got everything arranged on the table, a separate cup for each grain. Pale, caramel, brown and black malted grain for those who are interested, besides Daddy.
We poured a little bit of each grain into the funnel and into the bottle.
We alternated colors too. Dark, then light, then dark, etc.
Sometimes the funnel would get clogged so we jammed a pencil into it to loosen the grain.
When the bottle was full we topped it off with a colorful cap and voila!
The time came to head home. We love airplanes and airports . . .
. . . but Grandma is pretty awesome too.
We did what we could to help get through ticketing and security. All those toys from Grandma and Grandpa kind of weighed the suitcase down a little bit. Luckily we can in just under the 50-pound threshold.
