Crafts for Kindergarteners: Water Bottle Holders

Water is a necessary and healthy drink for humans to consume. Even children should carry water bottles with them so they don't get dehydrated. As important as it is for children to drink water, carrying the bottle around with them can sometimes be cumbersome and impractical. Help kindergartners create water bottle holder crafts and encourage them to drink water more often.

Fun Foam Holder

Create a reusable water bottle holder out of fun foam and other simple materials. Use a sturdy and reusable water bottle for the project. Wrap some fun foam around the water bottle. You want it to be snug so the bottle won't fall out, but you want it lose enough so you can remove the bottle for washing. Use plastic laces (available at craft and bead stores) to lace the fun foam closed. Use the plastic laces to stitch on a length of ribbon. The ribbon should be long enough to go over the child's shoulder and hold the water bottle similar to a woman's purse. Embellish the holder with fun foam or decorate the ribbon with beads.

Shirt Sleeve Bottle Holder

Re-purpose an old shirt into a water bottle holder. Cut the sleeve off of an old long sleeved shirt. Sew the cuff end. Or, so children can make it without assistance, just use a rubber band to secure it closed. The sleeve should be cut so that it is slightly longer than a bottle of water. Use tape to hem to the other end of the sleeve. Attach a ribbon handle that is long enough to carry the bottle over the child's shoulder or small enough to use around the child's wrist. Use a couple of stitches with needle and thread to secure the handle or just use duct tape.

Sock Water Bottle Holder

Use a sock to create a water bottle holder. Choose an attractive coloured or patterned new child's sock for the project. Ideally the sock would be about the same size as the water bottle. Put a water bottle in the sock. Add a ribbon to the cuff of the sock by sewing it in two places (opposite sides of the sock). Kindergarten students should be supervised with a needle and thread. You can also use a strong string and have students create a beaded handle by stringing large plastic beads on the string instead of ribbon.

Water Bottle Hat Holder

Create a hat that doubles as a water bottle holder. Sew two kids sized socks (with the cuffs folded) onto a plain baseball hat and put two water bottles into the socks. Kindergarten kids can decorate the baseball hat with fabric paint, jewels and sparkle paint. If you want to, add a straw to the bottles so it can actually function as a drinking fountain. Take the bottle caps off and replace them with push-pull stoppers (available at craft stores). Push approximately forty inches of aquarium plastic tubing through the stopper holes.
