Summer is a great time for craft projects, especially if you are in the countryside and you have a lot of free time for creativity. At first it seems ridiculous that plastic water bottle craft ideas exist, but this is wrong, you can cut out very useful and interesting little things, such as a bird feeder, playground for children or you can plant flowers . And we did a cool toy from a plastic water bottle – it’s a water bug, it can float on water or turn into a piggy bank for coins.

As you can see, we took the empty water plastic bottles, scissors, thread and a needle and a small piece of camping mat.

Cut off the bottom off the bottle and outline it – is a body of the bug. Draw the head and fins.

Here’s what we got, when we cut out the contour of the body. Material for tourist rug is very light and extremely good for the water, so our bug can float.

And it’s a whole family, we decided to put flowers and a small dinosaur inside, you can then pull it out. And if you cut a hole in the bottom, you get a piggy bank, it is transparent and it looks very interesting.
