Squirt Gun Alternative

It's Wednesday, again! Time for Works for Me Wednesday. This may be a little out of season for most of you. Just file it away until you need it.
I was looking for a quick alternative to squirt guns. We had two squirt guns and three children wanted to play with them. I rummaged around and found a dish washing liquid bottle that was almost empty. I cleaned it out, praying for forgiveness in wasting those few drops of soap and filled it with water.
It worked really well until all three kids decided that the soap bottle was way cooler than the squirt guns.

This winter I'll probably bring out the bottles again (they all have their own now) and fill them with water and food coloring so they can "write" in the snow.
