Craft at Home ~ Bottle Painting 

This activity includes 3 simple materials:

  • Paint
  • Paper – coloured or white
  • Bottles – the larger fizzy drinks ones are what we used.

This activity can be completed on the table, but we placed a floor covering down and found it was easier on the floor. The bottom of the bottles leave a fantastic pattern on the paper which look like flowers, it also gives a good effect when the bottles are repeatedly printed to produce a lovely spotty pattern of varying colours.

This activity could be extended by using different sized bottles and ones with different types of bottoms to produce varying prints.

Thanks for reading 🙂

    • Thanks for your comment 🙂 I first did this activity a few years ago when I worked with early years children in a nursery, I love how simple it is to find the materials yet it makes such an effective pattern. We are hoping to try different shaped bottles this week at home as it’s half term for the children 🙂
