  • I am thinking about making these for my second graders as pencil boxes. All there stuff inside and they can close them up and put them away at the end of the day!!! Hip hip hooray✅

    I’m going to put a few holes in the bottom of the bottle and a mesh fabric for the top for collecting shells at the beach 🐚 and my 6 year old granddaughter loves collecting rocks for her rock polisher. Love this idea all the way around!

      I’m going to Lake Huron in a month and collect rocks. I need to have one made by then. Love it!
