"Secret Place" Beach Bottle

With a deep sea theme at Bible school this year, it seemed appropriate to do a beach scene which reminds kids that we all need a place to meditate and pray in order to recharge our batteries from time to time. This would also be good for a pool party or other sea-themed party or program.

Approximate Time: 10-15 minutes

Supplies:

  • single-serving clear water bottles, clean, labels removed
  • sand about 3/4 cup for each
  • beads, small shells, sequins, shell noodles, glitter, confetti, stones, etc.
  • raffia, twine, or yarn
  • tags with holes
  • scoops or funnels
  • stickers (optional)
  • charms or crosses (optional)

Instructions:

  1. This is best done outside. Make sure bottles are dry inside. Add enough sand so that bottle is a little less than half full.
  2. Ad

  3. Set out your other items and let the kids put two or three of each in the bottles.
  4. Put the lid on tightly.
  5. Have them write their name on one side of the tag and a Bible verse (or quote) on the other side. (I made my tags out of maps).
  6. Put raffia or twine through the hole and tie to bottle neck. Add a charm or foam cross, if desired.
  7. Add stickers to the outside, if desired.
  8. Display the bottle on its side. The beads and shells and things will lay on the top.

NOTE: For preschoolers, omit the tags and raffia.
