Bottle Bank

This is a plastic bottle made into a bank. My 4 year old grandson, Walker made this bank at daycare. I told him I needed one. Since I like Dr Pepper and Mickey Mouse, he made me this one.


Approximate Time: 20 minutes


  • clean empty plastic bottle
  • piece of paper
  • markers
  • glue


Clean and dry bottle. I cut a slot in it and cut a piece of paper to fit around it. He then drew on it and on the bottle too. We then glued the paper around the bottle. I love it.

I think they would be a great "cost almost nothing" gifts for grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.
