Dinner time is one of our favorite times to spend time together as a family! This past week we moved into a new house, the weeks leading up to the move were crazy and hectic. With all the commotion we didn’t get to spend very much time eating together as a family around the dinner table. We finally had a weeknight with no soccer or after school activities so to help make our first sit down dinner in the new house an easy one, we went to the deli at Walmart!
The kids loved that the 2 liters of Coca Cola and Sprite had fun holiday messages on them! With the move, it had been a long time since we had done a craft as a family so the girls came up with the idea to make Christmas trees out of the bottles after dinner. Thankfully dinner required very little effort since we are still in the process of unpacking the kitchen! While we warmed up the pizzas the girls took care of setting the table and started talking about how to make their craft idea work. The green sprite bottle was already perfect for making a Christmas tree! The girls pretty much did it on their own which I always love to see; they’re growing up so fast and they do so many creative projects all on their own now!
2 Liter Bottle Christmas Tree Supplies:
- Washed out 2-liter bottles with removed labels
- Spray paint
- Pom poms
- Star for on top of the tree
- Glue Gun
- Optional Glitter, jingle bells, tinsel, etc. as decorations
2 Liter Bottle Christmas Tree Directions:
Spray paint your bottle if needed, be sure to pay attention to what you are spraying over we used a leftover moving box. I had no idea that there is so many forms of spray paint, so make sure you get one that will work on the plastic bottles! Thankfully Amazon has quite a few options as well.
Allow to dry
The girls used the glue gun with me and did very well; Michael wasn’t as interested in the craft but had fun eating dinner with us. He did sit at the table a couple times and visit with the girls so it was a success in my book! All three kids took a turn spray painting the bottle outside even though it was raining!
The move was very stressful for all of us and an easy meal made it possible for us to get back into the routine of sitting down together as a family for dinner. I love that we were able to make our first sit down dinner at our new home a memorable one!
What crafts have you made out of recycled two-liter bottles before?
