Dog Bottle Bank Water Bottle Craft



For this Dog Bottle Bank Water Bottle Craft, recycle a plastic into an adorable puppy and have it watch over your money. Recycled crafts for kids can help teach kids about the importance of helping the planet through reducing and reusing. If you want to stay hydrated but feel guilty drinking out of a plastic bottle, this is the perfect project for you. Recycled craft ideas don't have to look hokey or trashy, either. This fun craft for kids looks great on a dresser or nightstand and will help kids learn the value of saving their precious change. The project is perfect for a rainy day or spring afternoon - turn off the TV and get creative today.

This is great! And, if you wanted to, you could adapt it to fit any size bottle or jar; if you used wide-mouth jars, you could even reach in for your item stored inside--good for small stuff like screws, washers, or anything!!! For all of us doggy lovers, this is a wonderful idea!
