INSIDE: How to make zoo animal water bottles for kids…without a machine. DIY zoo-theme water bottle labels.
Going to the zoo – especially a world-class one like the San Diego Zoo – is beyond fun for the kids. Those “kids” also include mom and dad. It’s an educationally interesting, all-day activity where you will indeed log many footsteps on your tracker!
Now as a mom of three little kids, I often feel like I’m living in my own wild animal habitat! So what is more fitting when taking my trio of wild and active monkeys to the zoo then to outfit them with animal-themed water bottles?
Learn how we got into the zoo spirit with DIY water bottle labels…without a fancy machine…that can be done in cheetah-like speed!
DIY Zoo Animal Water Bottle Labels for Kids
If you ask folks who know me well, they will tell you I love myself a theme. I get all into it! And a family trip to the zoo is no exception. Here’s how I made the kids zoo-themed water bottles…without some fancy machine! (But if you have one, lucky ducky!)
– Water Bottles (I used reusable plastic bottles for the kids, like these)
– Silhouette printable sticker paper
– Home printer
– Craft scissors
diy water bottle labels without machine
This is a super easy project! I have created the FREE downloadable water bottle graphics in both color and black and white. Feel free to use these for personal use only!
Follow the directions on the Silhouette printable sticker paper AND remember to let it dry for 15 (or more) minutes!
Cut the sticker to fit the size of the water bottle. Peel off the paper backing.
Place the clear sticker onto the water bottle doing your best to limit the finger prints (which show on the label. Lesson learned there!)
So if you find yourself the only crafty lady (ahem, yours truly) without a fancy schmancy vinyl cutting machine, don’t fret!
You can be just creative with a sticker as you can be with vinyl.
