However, I only allow bottles with pop-up tops. You know what happens if they bring bottles with screw-off lids. The moment they take the lid off, someone bumps the bottle and there's water everywhere!
So, I pick the bottles up at The Dollar Tree or Target. I love these because they're super tall and have handles - perfect for the littles! However, since they're all matching they can often get mixed up if they're not labeled.
Enter my Cricut. I use my Cricut Explore to cut student names out of vinyl to apply to the bottles. As long as they're just handwashed, they seem to last all year long!
This year, I decided to place a few starbursts in the bottom of them with a tag by Applicious Teacher that says "I'm BURSTING with Excitement to Have You in My Class This Year!"
I also tie a little tag to the bottle itself telling them to fill the bottle up and bring back to school!
It's a super easy, super cheap, super practical gift that my students use daily throughout the year!
