Goal in a Bottle
These goals won't be lost at sea!
Capture inspiring goals and tuck them safely inside a beach-themed bottle to create a memento that helps you stay on track.
- • Bottles or repurposed plastic bottles with lids
- • Sand
- • Blue balloons (optional)
- • Small seashells
- • Scissors
- • Marker or pen
- • Label template
- • Note template
- • Yarn
- • Tape
- • Photo of goal (optional)
Optional: Add some extra inspiration by including a photo of your goal in your bottle. To show some extra love to the sea turtles repurpose used plastic bottles for this craft. Blue balloons add a fun water effect!
Step 1: Gather supplies and print templates.
Step 2: Decorate the outside of the bottle. Cut out a label from the template and tape it on the front of your bottle. Wrap the top of the bottle in yarn and tie ends together to hold it in place, this can be as big or little as you like!
(Optional) A blue balloon can be used to create the look of water, just cut the balloon in half using your scissors (cut in a wavy line instead of straight across to create waves) and fit the balloon to the bottom of your bottle.
Step 3: Fill the bottom of the bottle with sand and small seashells.
Step 4: Now it’s time to think about your goals! Trim out the note template and write your goals on back. Once you are done roll the paper up and use a piece of yarn to tie a knot or bow to secure it.
Step 5: Pop your goal note inside the bottle and put on the lid. You could also add a photo of your goal inside the bottle for some visual inspiration!
