My mom did this with us when I was little!

You've reminded me also, that my best friend's phone number when I was growing up played the the first seven notes of "Angels We Have Heard on High." That was back in the day of analog push button phones. I thought of the carol every single time I dialed her number.

I can remember doing this when I was a kid. It was easier when we used to get cases of soft drinks delivered. Very fun!

So, it doesn't matter how big the bottle is? Just the amount of water in it? How interesting. Must be a physics lesson in there somewhere.

Yes, it matters how big the bottles are. You will need eight 20oz. bottles for this activity.
The picture is a little missleading, sorry!
