Keeping my kids busy long enough for me to make dinner is a struggle. With the weather cooling off, they want to play outside less and less. The best part about making crafts is I can keep an eye on them while I’m making dinner, and there’s tons of things around the house they can use. I think you will love these water bottle craft ideas for kids.
We always have a ton of spare water bottles around the house, so I let my kids get to crafting! Many of these can be used as learning opportunities and incorporated into lessons if you choose to do so.
