I mentioned before that Hazel is the best toy we own. The second best toy? A water bottle full of junk.
My sister got this idea through Parents as Teachers (a service I wish we had in Houston!) and it was always a huge hit with her kids. Arden has since joined the fan club–she might even be the president. I’m telling you, she LOVES this thing! And when I take it to playgroups it is always the toy the babies go for first. I even made one as part of a birthday present for Arden’s friend Avery. Yes, we give junk for birthday presents 🙂
So, you might want to take notes…this is a pretty complicated tutorial.
What you’ll need:
1 empty water bottle (label removed)
Buttons or coins
Ribbon (I chose K-State…starting the brainwashing early)
Anything else your heart desires
1. Throw it all in the bottle.
2. Screw on the lid.
3. Shake, shake, shake 🙂
(FYI – most of your pictures will look like this)
Pretty tough, right?
Now go raid your craft boxes. You won’t regret it!
