Recycled Beach Crafts

beachOne of our favorite places to be in the summertime is the beach!  There’s just something about the sand, surf, and sunshine.  We’re sure you love playing in the sand with your kids, so we thought we’d share a fun beach craft with you.  It’s a great way to save some money on beach toys and help mother nature out in the process!

Homemade Beach Scoopers
All you need for this fun little beach craft is:

  • An empty 2-liter bottle
  • Scissors
  • Puff paint (you can get this at any craft store)


  • Remove the label from the bottle.
  • Cut the bottle in half.
  • Decorate with the puff paints.

This leaves you with two different beach toys.  The bottom of the bottle makes a great beach scoop.  It’s also perfect for making sand castles!  The top half is great for funneling water out.  It makes building moats around your sandcastles really easy.

When everyone is finished with the scoops, make sure you clean them out and recycle them.
