We turned a little water bottle into a brilliant sippy cup this hot afternoon. Rowan gets bored with his sippy cups. At random, he changes his mind as to what he finds an acceptable beverage receptacle. This afternoon, this water bottle did the trick, and he was drinking out of it like crazy. I think these would be great at a toddler birthday party.

Homemade Sippy Cup

Small water bottle
Screwdriver ( I think a Phillips head worked well)

Remove top from water bottle. Force screwdriver into the top until it forms a hole. Maneuver the screw driver, so that the hole is the right size for your straw. Insert straw and screw back on bottle.


  1. Great idea! And the funny thing is that I think my water-bottle-and-straw obsessed 7-year-old would love this.

  2. Cute! Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. I love the title of this blog!

  3. Well thank you for this, I have many water bottles lying around, and straws, this is a wonderful way of reusing them, J is going to love to drink out of a water bottle!

  4. What a fun idea, great for summer-time! Looks like it went over well with your little one too!

  5. Cute and easy idea! I love the straw as well :)

  6. that's a great idea! i will pin it ; )

  7. That is smart! I'm going to try that! It's also a great way to prevent scary insects falling into your bottle.
