Impress the kids with science magic!

I just came across this great simple experiment that is sure to wow kids and help parents show them how cool science can be.

The bottle disappears because glass and glycerine have the same refractive index.  You should be able to get glycerine from your local chemist.  If anyone tries this, please let us know in the comments.
