Today we are making a simple water bottle for doll play!
Every day my kids pack a water bottle with their lunch for school. But that’s not the only time they grab their water bottles!
Taking a road trip? Fill up your water bottle for the car.
Having a day at the beach? Bring along your water bottle.
Time for a hike? Don’t forget your water bottle.
Water bottles find their way into our day to day life, so they will certainly find their way into day to day play!
Let’s make a water bottle!
- Mini shampoo, conditioner, or lotion bottles (empty, washed out and dry)
- Washi tape
This doll size water bottle is made from a mini hotel shampoo bottle. I first saw the idea to use this mini bottle a number of years ago. (Link is here.) I added my own touch with washi tape for a fun design to the water bottle!
Start with a clean, dry bottle. You may want to remove any label stickers on the bottle. Since my bottles had clear stickers I decided to leave them.
Cut the tape end so it will have a smooth start and finish. Place a strip of tape the length of the bottle. Add each strip, slightly overlapping the previous until the bottle is covered.
Hotel shampoo bottles come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Washi tape also comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns which means your water bottle has endless possibilities!
This particular bottle even has a flip top.
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy doll size water bottle!
