Homemade Bud Vase
Glass bottle, masking tape, paint
This is a fun activity for springtime, when the flowers are beginning to bloom. Take a glass bottle, such as a salad dressing bottle or a taco sauce bottle, and remove the label. Then, let your child apply small pieces of masking tape all over the bottle until the entire bottle, except the opening, is covered. Last, help your child to gently brush paint over the tape. Add a couple of flowers from the garden and your child has made a vase!
