Recycle plastic 2-litre bottles instead of throwing them away. Use them to make cool crafts with your kids, and take a chance to discuss recycling with them. Create something really interesting on a rainy day, and save the landfills from another plastic bottle or two.

Make a cute plastic basket for Easter or any other type of occasion using a clean and label-free 2-litre bottle. Cut the top part of the bottle off, about 10 cm (4 inches) from the bottom. Create a hole in each side using a hole punch, and thread pipe cleaners through the holes to create a handle for your basket. Load the basket with treats or candy. For Easter purposes, a green coloured bottle would look similar to grass.
Make a neat ocean bottle by using a clean 2-litre bottle to simulate ocean waves. Fill the bottle up to the halfway point with water, then colour the water blue with a little food colouring. Add some glitter if you like, and small plastic fish or sea animal toys. Fill the bottle to the top with vegetable oil, and glue the cap to the top of the bottle to prevent spills. Set the bottle on its side and watch the waves rock back and forth.
Treasure bottle toy
Make a toy that allows kids to look for tiny treasures hidden within. You'll need some small plastic toys, beads and coins. Put the treats inside a clean 2-litre bottle and then fill it over halfway full with uncooked rice grains. Have kids turn the bottle around to look for the toys within.
Cut the top part off of a plastic bottle. Fill it with sand or coloured marbles, and sit a votive candle inside the sand or marbles to make a funky candle holder. Make sure the votive is sitting in a glass holder as well before you actually light it. Decorate the bottle by gluing on ribbon or stick-on crystals.
