Garden Watering Bottle

To make a watering bottle for a gift or for yourself, you will need: a 2-liter plastic soda pop bottle with a cap, a nail, a hammer, and a variety of stickers.

  1. Clean the bottle and remove the label.

  2. With an adult’s help, use the nail and the hammer to poke five holes on one side near the top of the bottle (see illustration).

  3. Decorate the bottle with the stickers.

  4. To use, remove the cap, fill the bottle with water to just below the holes, put the cap back on, and water the small flowers or vegetable plants in your garden.
