Keeping the little ones busy throughout the holidays is no easy task. Our children’s bottles have some great craft projects and activities on the back and are always a huge hit. So, we’ve put together some of our favourite (and easiest!) bottle crafts that children of all ages will love. We can’t think of a better way to recycle our bottles – have fun!
1. Cuff bracelets
Princesses and superheroes alike will have an absolute blast decorating their very own cuff bracelets. Get creative with tissue paper, paint, glitter, sequins, foils and just about anything you can find! Our 300ml bottles are perfect for little wrists. Get the tutorial: Kid Things – a fantastic blog crammed full of craft ideas and delicious recipes.
2. Piggy bank
This project will keep the little ones busy for a whole afternoon. Use smaller bottles for pocket money or larger bottles for bigger savings. Get the tutorial: FabDIY – an endlessly useful source of DIY projects.
3. Light up bugs
Transform your bottles into beautiful fireflies or spectacular glow worms. Children will love making their bugs colourful and unique before popping a glow stick inside and seeing it come to life! Get the tutorial: Craft for All Seasons – a craft site for absolute beginners or seasoned crafting pros.
4. Jellyfish in a bottle
Even big kids love this project. Using only five items that you’ve probably already got in the cupboard, you can create your very own aquarium! Our 1.5L bottles are perfect for this project. Get the tutorial: Bhoomplay – a family blog from Thailand.
5. Bubble Blowers
If you’re looking for something that takes less than five minutes to make but will keep them occupied for a good while, you’ve come to the right place. Don’t forget to decorate! Get the tutorial: Twodaloo – a great source for activities and information about early childhood development.
