Soda Pop Walk

Our local elementary school is having a fund raiser tonight.  Part of that involves a soda pop walk.  Have you ever heard of that before?  Me either.  Apparently it is akin to a cake walk.  Cake was sort of out of the question--because our school has a strict policy about homemade treats.  So they opted for soda pop.  The kids were asked to decorate a 2-liter bottle of pop to have as prizes for the "walk".  And really that was all the instruction we were given. 

OK.  So now that you are all up to speed.  Want to see what we came up with?  In honor of the two up-coming holidays...

This lucky leprechaun started out life as a bottle of Sprite.  
We added a few embellishments, made a few snips with our 
scissors, applied glue generously, and...lo and behold his true identity was discovered!

This little guy has a heart of pink lemonade!  You may recognize his britches from here.  The soda pop bottle fit perfectly!   We wrapped the bottle in brown craft paper, added a face and some ears.  My daughter thought he needed a bowtie.  And I wholeheartedly agreed!

This bottle of Fanta orange shouted "spring" to my kindergartner.  She thought a spring scene was definitely the way to go.  She created this almost entirely on her own.  I punched out the flowers and helped her glue her scene onto the bottle.  I thought it turned out so cute.  I love the flowers and the little bunnies.  Those must be baby bunnies.  Not all of them have caught on to the art of hopping yet.  I guess we all must fall sometimes.

Who knew that a bottle of pop could be such a fun canvas for creating!

  1. These are so cute - I would have just handed over plain old bottle of soda. Maybe tied a bow on.
