When it is time for a movement break the child has to find and perform all the different exercises in the bottle. If you wanted you could connect a list to the bottle so the child could mark off what exercises they found in the bottle. If a child is unable to read, try placing pictures of different animals in the bottle and the child would have to perform all the animal actions.
