We like to get a real tree each year for Christmas and then I find uses for the tree afterwards. In the past, they were used as fish habitats at lake I used to live near, but last year we reused it for things with the kiddos.
These Nature Inspired Discovery Bottles were easy to make and both kids loved them. I simply cut off a few branches from the tree. I also found some pine cones hiding in the tree which was an added bonus. I bought some glitter and Voss water. After drinking the water, I filled the bottles with the items and added water. Finally, I hot glued the lids on to make sure the kiddos didn’t take them off.
