How to make a message in a bottle
What you will need
- Some small glass or plastic bottles with lids or cork tops. (We got ours from eBay, but craft shops should stock these too)
- PVA glue
- Coloured beads
- A few pretty pins (optional)
- Some small pieces of paper
- A pencil
- 2 small bowls: one to put the beads in and the other to catch the excess glitter.
Do your children love writing secret messages? Then they'll love making this cute little message in a bottle craft.
It's the perfect present for teachers at the end of term, or make a few for family members at Christmas. There doesn't even need to be a special occasion to get crafty - make these bottles with your children as a weekend activity and then exchange your secret messages at the end - you'll enjoy reading each others' little notes!
Age group: 6+. You could always write the note for younger children, if you like.
Safety tips: Just watch nobody swallows the beads!
