The trick to getting your little ones excited for the haunted holiday is giving them this treat of a craft to do! Not only is it a fun, family-friendly activity that you can do at home with your kids, but it’s also perfect if you’re planning a Halloween party. Instead of serving candy and sugary snacks, provide your party guests with these water bottles as an alternative, then turn them into an easy — and engaging — activity that will keep them entertained all afternoon. Not to mention that the cute cartoon labels will encourage little ones to stay healthy and hydrated. Get the steps below for this adorable kid-friendly, Halloween-themed crayon holder and coloring sheets DIY, brought to you by Evite in partnership with Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water Halloween collection.

Step 1: Download and print our free Nestlé® Pure Life® printable coloring sheets.
Step 2: Using scissors, cut the top off an empty water bottle (we used a Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water Halloween collection bottle). An adult should execute this step.
Step 3: Help the little ones pick out their favorite water bottle design, then use that design as inspiration for creating a Halloween-themed crayon holder. First, select a corresponding piece of construction paper to wrap around the base of the water bottle. Use a pencil to trace an 8.5″ x 2.75″ rectangle on the construction paper.
Step 4: Have an adult cut out the 8.5″ x 2.75″ rectangle.
Step 5: Wrap the piece of colored construction paper around the water bottle and attach using double-sided tape.
Step 6: Decorate the water bottle based on your chosen design. We picked the mummy design so we wrapped ours in gauze, which we adhered with double-sided tape.
Step 7: Add googly eyes, buttons or other craft supplies to the water bottle and adhere using double-sided tape or a glue stick.
Step 8: Finish decorating your sweet or spooky monster and place crayons inside. Time to grab those coloring sheets and get creative!
