Easy Recycled Bottle Cat Container

Recycled Bottle Cat Containers make a cute, and best of all FREE craft! I came up with this fun idea after doing a little spring cleaning.

My cat is not feeling well and living in my bathroom right now, which means I’m constantly cleaning that room for him. I found a bunch of old shampoo bottles that I started to trash, but decided to turn them into cat containers instead. I guess my cat inspired me!

Start Fresh This Spring

Spring is the perfect time to clear out your old bathroom products and start fresh! I’m writing on behalf of CVS to let you know they are having an amazing offer on various Suave products.  Now is the perfect time to buy new products for the entire family! I got all of these great Suave products for less than $15.

Here’s what I got at CVS:

  • Suave Ocean Breeze Body Wash for my daughter who loves body wash. This contains mineral-rich sea algae extract, and is infused with Vitamin E, which can help condition her dry skin.
  • Suave Keratin Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner for me! Did you know your hair’s natural keratin protein depletes over time, leading to frizzy and unmanageable hair. This helps restore and tame unruly strands for smoother silky hair.

Go ahead and use up and recycle those half-empty bottles with this fun cat container craft. Then head over to CVS for some great values. Right now get 2 for $6 + Buy 2 and get $2 ExtraBucks rewards with your CVS card.

How to Make a Recycled Bottle Cat Container

Now that you’ve cleaned out old bottles of shampoo, lotion and body wash. It’s time to make some cute cat containers.

Recycled bottle cat container is a simple craft! Easy repurposed shampoo bottles turned into cute kitty cat containers.

 

I think these easy Recycled Bottle Cat Containers would be fun for a kid’s birthday party activity. Just have pre-cut bottles cut and let kids draw their own cat faces on the bottles with a sharpie.

What you’ll need:

  • Shampoo, lotion or body wash bottles (Remove labels with nail polish remover)
  • Sharpie
  • Exacto knife
  • Scissors
  • Sand paper (optional)

Recycled bottle cat container is a simple craft! Easy repurposed shampoo bottles turned into cute kitty cat containers.

  1. Start by drawing a line for the head and ears with your sharpie on the front of the bottle.
  2. On the back, draw the cat’s tail.
  3. Carefully begin cutting out the cat’s ears and move towards the back towards the tail.
  4. Cut as much of the bottle away from the tail with the blade, then use scissors to shape everything nice and neat. If the edges are too rough or sharp, sand down with sandpaper.
  5. Wash out any extra product from the bottle and clean any pen marks.
  6. Draw a cat face and you’re done.

What Should You Do With Your Cat Container?

Here are some fun ideas for how to use your new kitty cat containers:

  • Hang in shower to hold razors or face cleaner
  • Use as a planter
  • Hang on a wall for decor
  • Pencil holders
  • To store headphone and phone chargers

I hope this project inspired you to start fresh and try something new. Don’t miss the great deals for Suave at CVS!

Glow in the Dark Galaxy Jars

Sponsored by DreamWorks Animation Television

With kids out of school for the holidays, this is the perfect time to get crafty at home! Today’s craft idea for these easy glow in the dark Galaxy Jars was inspired by Tales of Arcadis: 3Below, a cute new animated series streaming now on Netflix. It’s perfect for the whole family to watch together over the holiday break!

From the director Guillermo del Toro and the team behind DreamWorks Trollhunters, 3Below is a hilarious tale of alien royalty who must escape intergalactic bounty hunters by blending in on a primitive junk heap known as Earth.

Make one or two of these Galaxy Jars, grab some popcorn and snuggle up for some out of this world family adventures!

About 3Below

3Below follows two royal teenage aliens, Aja and Krel, and their bodyguard Vex, as they flee a surprise takeover of their home planet and crash-land on Earth. Now on the run from intergalactic bounty hunters, they must blend in and adapt to the bizarre world of high school all while attempting to repair their ship to return to and defend their home planet.

Easy Galaxy Jars Craft

I thought glow in the dark Galaxy Jars would be fun to make and then light up while watching this new series! After we got to testing the galaxy jars, I came up with two different versions for you to choose from.

How to make Glow in the Dark Galaxy Jars. An easy DIY craft tutorial and party decor idea for kids by Living Locurto.

  • On the left is the No-Mess Galaxy Jar version with a printable galaxy backdrop from 3Below.
  • On the right is the slimy Ooey Gooey Galaxy Jar version that I know your kids will enjoy making. Just like Princess Aja’s alien dog, Luug, it’s a slobber mess, but of course super fun!

 

How to make Glow in the Dark Galaxy Jars

With only a few ingredients, these glowing Galaxy Jars are a piece of cake to make! Here are the directions for both versions that I showed in the photo above.

What you’ll need to make the Ooey Gooey Galaxy Jars:

How to make Glow in the Dark Galaxy Jars. An easy DIY craft tutorial and party decor idea for kids by Living Locurto.

Step 1

Remove the caps to the glue and squeeze some of each color onto a plate (plastic disposable is best). Use a plastic spoon to pick up some blue glue and rub it around the inside of a glass jar. Coat the jar well, but not too thick.

Next, spread some purple glue around, then add some pink in several places.

 Galaxy Jars are an easy DIY craft tutorial and party decor idea for kids by Living Locurto.

Step 2

Place the jar into the microwave and set the timer to 40 seconds. The heat from the microwave will heat the glue making it crystalize on the glass. You might need to heat for 30 additional seconds if you don’t notice the glue drying.

CAUTION: The jar will be HOT. Use an oven mitt to remove the glass from the microwave.

Let the jar completely cool.

Add more glue if you want more color and repeat the heating process. Only do this a few times, overheating can cause the glue to burn and darken the glass.

Step 3

Once the jars have cooled, add a battery operated votive candle or glow stick and enjoy looking into the galaxy when it gets dark!

Christmas Tree Braid – Cute Girls Hairstyle

Cute Christmas Tree Braid for Girls

This Christmas tree braid turned out so cute!  I love being creative and thought I would challenge myself to doing something extra cute with my daughter’s hair for Christmas. She actually let me play around with her hair until I came up with this fun and simple Christmas Tree Hairstyle!

If you have a little girl and not so good with hair like me, then this Christmas tree braid hairstyle is for you! It’s really easy and looks cute even if you don’t decorate the tree. Just follow my directions and I’m sure you can do it!

We love making cute crafts for girl’s hair, but this is the first time I’ve actually tried a braid. If I can do it, you can too!

How to Make a Christmas Tree Braid

With only a few embellishments you’ll have an adorable Christmas themed hair braid! The girls will love it. I hope you enjoy this fun idea.

What you’ll need:

  • 11 Small Rubber Bands (green is fun!)
  • 1 Larger Hair Band (brown looks like the tree trunk)
  • Gift Bow or Star Hair Clip
  • Bobby Pin
  • Hot Glue
  • Ribbon & Tiny Ornaments for Decoration (optional)

Get all supplies ready along with a hair comb. Glue a bobby pin to the back of a gift bow for the Christmas Tree star.

Christmas Tree Braid Tutorial. Easy Hairstyle for Girls! LivingLocurto.com

First you want to pull half of the hair back and secure into a pony tail with a small band.

Split the half pony tail hair into two sections. Braid each section and secure each end with a small rubber band.

Here is the trickiest part that I wish I had on video for you. Really, it’s very easy though. What you want to do is form a Christmas tree shape with the two braids.

Pull one braid to the right side of the head and gather a small bit of hair about an inch down and to the right. Secure the braid to the loose hair with a small band. Let the loose hair fall back into place under the braid.

Do this three to four more times depending on the length of the hair.

Christmas Tree Braid Tutorial. Easy Hairstyle for Girls! LivingLocurto.com

Repeat on the left side. My daughter’s hair did much better on this side. I’m not sure why, but it looked so much cleaner.

Make sure the two bottom bands on each braid line up. Then bring the two braids together to form the tree shape.

Christmas Tree Braid Tutorial. Easy Hairstyle for Girls! LivingLocurto.com

I removed the small bands, then used a larger brown band to attach the two braids together with a section of loose hair going down the middle of the head.

This took some maneuvering to get the shape just right. Once the hair is secured and the braids are shaped to look like a tree, add the bow to the top of the Christmas Tree.

Decorate Your Christmas Tree Braid

I really LOVED the simple shape of the Christmas Tree braid. You could absolutely leave it like this for an adorable hairstyle.

Since we had time to play, I decided to go ahead and decorate the tree just for fun! I found some floral stems in my Christmas decorations that had small glitter berries and thought they would make good mini ornaments.

Christmas Tree Braid Tutorial. Easy Hairstyle for Girls! LivingLocurto.com

After attaching strips of ribbon to the rubber bands, I stuck some of the plastic berries inside the braid. They stayed put just like a bobby pin.

What a fun and easy Christmas hairstyle right?!?

Printable Days of the Week Closet Tags

I love this idea for Days of the Week Closet Tags that I came up with to help keep my kids organized and ready for school. It’s been a lifesaver! No more stressful mornings and my kids learned their days of the weeks at a very young age.

Getting organized for back to school and ready for my kid’s daily routines is a huge help for a busy mom like me. To make mornings much easier, we chose clothes for each day of the week and hung them on a low closet rack for my kids to reach. Then I designed some cute Days of the Week Tags to hang on each outfit’s hanger. The Days of the Week Closet Tags have the day of the week written out and a giant letter for kids not old enough to read.

How the Days of the Week Closet Tags Work

To help you visualize how these tags work, I’m sharing a photo of my son’s closet from when he was in kindergarten. We still do this and he is now going into the 5th grade!

The night before school, he takes the designated outfit off of the hangers and lays it on the floor by his door. This way he won’t forget to get dressed before coming downstairs. We usually make silly poses with the clothes and that makes it even more fun!

These Days of the Week Closet Tags are also perfect for my daughter, because she can go a little crazy on the layering! This causes much less decision making stress in the morning! I designed the pastel pinks and purple Days of the Week tags for her closet.

This Reese’s Slime Recipe is Incredible!

If you love chocolate peanut butter cups, then you’ll go crazy over this fun new Reese’s Slime Recipe! The best part about this awesome craft is that it’s EDIBLE slime! Yep, you can actually eat this if you feel the need for a snack during play time. My daughter is obsessed with slime. She recently made the best Unicorn Fluffy Slime Recipe that went crazy around the internet. She has a slime Instagram account where she makes videos of her latest slime creations, so I thought it would be fun to do a summer slime series here on Living Locurto!

I’m excited to start off our Summer Slime Series with this incredible edible Reese’s Slime Recipe! This recipe calls for Peanut Butter Slime and Chocolate Slime (the chocolate is actually more like putty). Both recipes are super easy to make and when you mix them together, you have one of our favorite candies.

Making your slime look like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups is so easy. It makes playing with slime even more fun. These would make really cute gifts for friends who love playing with slime and putty!

To make slime Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, line a mini muffin pan with cupcake liners. Add a bottom layer of chocolate slime flatten with a spoon, then add a middle layer of peanut butter slime flatten with a spoon and a top layer of chocolate slime to cupcake liners. Chill in refrigerator for a hour, remove paper liners and play!

The slime should soften after you knead it. The chocolate ends up being more like putty, so if it is too hard and crumbly, add it to a bowl with a tablespoon of peanut butter and heat in the microwave for 15-30 seconds. Stir and knead. Add cornstarch to prevent stickiness until you achieve desired texture. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container. This recipe is actually really edible for up to 2 days after you make it.

I love how Nella is more than a princess, and more than a knight. She’s the princess-knight! I also love how she rides a talking unicorn and fights for justice on every adventure. A hero unlike any other, she stays true to herself through determination, power, and courage.

Nella the Princess Knight

One of our favorite characters is Trinket, Nella’s talking unicorn and best friend who loves fashion. She is one stylish unicorn who is supportive and encouraging of her friends, and will be serious if the situation calls for it, in order to help Nella solve problems.

Making unicorn cotton candy party favors that look like Trinket will no doubt be a hit at any party! If you host a Nella the Princess Knight party, be sure to download and print the tags I designed for gift tags or party table decor.

I love how this show encourages kids to be strong smart and full of heart. We really need more shows like this! I’ve been traveling a lot the past week with my daughter for her competitive cheer competitions and always amazed by her courage and heart. She wows me everyday and after making these unicorn party favors with her, we took some photos which made me laugh so hard!! I tried to get her to be serious, but that wasn’t going to happen. She loves to make people laugh and her silly posing eventually got us both laughing so hard that I finally gave up trying. ha!

White paper cups

Frosting bags

Tape or Glue Dots

Scissors

Black Sharpie Marker

Unicorn Cotton Candy Party Favors perfect for a birthday or kids craft supplies.

Step 1: Place the cotton candy into a frosting bag, twist and seal with tape.

Step 2: Cut unicorn ears about 1.5 inches high out of white card stock.

Step 3: Trim the pink boa into 3-4 inch pieces. This might be very messy depending on your brand of boa! I found one at a craft store for a few dollars, but it made a mess after cutting. I suggest cutting over a trash can.

Step 4: Punch a hole into the bottom of a cup, pull the end of the frosting bag through the hole then do the same with the piece of pink boa.

Step 5: With a glue dot or tape, attach the ears and a flower.

Step 6: Draw eyes with the sharpie and pink dots for the nose onto the cup.

Step 7: Print the Nella the Princess Knight tags for gifts or party table decor.

Easy Unicorn Fluffy Slime Recipe!

This simple homemade fluffy slime recipe is the best! My daughter loves crafting and is obsessed with slime, especially unicorn fluffy slime! She loves making slime, playing with it, stretching and popping it. She’s been dying for her own iPhone and when since she got one for Christmas all she has been doing is making slime recipe videos.

I’m very excited to share her first how to video tutorial for this fabulous Rainbow Unicorn Fluffy Slime! I think she did a wonderful job! This unicorn slime recipe is super fluffy and so easy to make. It’s addictive and once you make it, you might not be able to stop playing with it. I love the neon colors!

Homemade Fluffy Slime Recipe

What I love about this recipe is that it blends three pretty pastel colors into a unicorn rainbow! If you use the exact color combination as pictured below, your slime when combined, should turn a darker shade of gray blue. Using other colors might make your slime turn a yucky brown color. So be sure to follow directions carefully on this slime recipe.

Concerned about Borax?

This slime recipe includes white glue, shaving cream and a small amount of borax powder diluted in water. My daughter has very sensitive hands and this slime does not affect her hands at all. If you are unsure about using borax, please watch this informative video from Stephen Spangler, the king of science projects for kids. If you prefer not to use borax to activate the slime, use saline solution instead. If you are allergic to borax, shaving cream or glue please do not make.

From Parents.com:

Experts like Vanessa Stoloff, M.D., a family practitioner at the University of Pennsylvania, say the whole Borax business is actually pretty benign. In fact, the DIY thing is currently going down in her own home courtesy of her 11-year-old twin daughters, who recently made a batch of cookie dough slime that smelled like fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. “As long as your kids’ slime recipes don’t include tasting it,” she told Parents.com, “topical Borax shouldn’t affect skin—especially at the amount being used.”

Dr. Jason Hack, a toxicologist from Rhode Island Hospital, also has a daughter who’s into making slime. “It’s a great activity,” he told WPRI 12 Eyewitness News. And he echoed Dr. Stoloff’s arguement that the small amount of Borax the kids are using is not absorbed through the skin. “It would take eating a lot of it to actually become toxic,” he explained.

If your child does accidentally ingest any slime that contains Borax, you should contact the American Association of Poison Control at 800-222-1222 immediately.

Fluffy Slime is Awesome!

What makes this slime so fluffy is shaving cream. The fluffy sensation won’t last forever, so play with it right after you make it.

Rainbow Unicorn Slime | Easy Fluffy Slime Recipe

How to make Rainbow Unicorn Slime in only 5 minutes! An easy video tutorial and homemade fluffy slime recipe. A fun kids craft activity.

  • 1/2 cup white glue
  • 1/2 cup foaming shaving cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon borax powder
  • 1 cup water
  • Blue, pink and yellow neon food coloring
  1. In a large bowl mix glue and shaving cream with a spoon.
  2. In a separate bowl or cup, mix 1/2 teaspoon of borax in 1 cup of water. Stir until the borax is dissolved. (To speed up this process, place mixture in a glass cup and microwave for 30-60 seconds.)

  3. Add about a teaspoon of the borax and water mixture into the glue/shaving cream bowl and stir.

  4. Knead with your hands and if it’s too sticky, add a tiny bit more borax and water mixture.
  5. Once your fluffy slime recipe is ready. Separate into three pieces.
  6. Add a drop of blue food coloring to the first piece of slime and knead until the entire piece is blue.
  7. Repeat with the other two pieces of slime by adding one drop of pink and one drop of yellow to them.
  8. When all three pieces are colored, add them together.
  9. Gently knead the fluffy slime until you have a pretty mixture of the rainbow.
  10. The longer you knead this slime, the more the colors will become one.

If you prefer not to use Borax to activate the slime, try to substitute with saline solution or laundry detergent. If you don’t use Borax, do not use water and you may need to add baking soda to thicken the slime.

Rubber gloves recommended for sensitive skin.

* DO NOT EAT. Not for small children without adult supervision.
* Do not make if you have skin allergies to cleaning supplies, glue, food dye or shaving cream.
