You will need:
- mini milk bottles
- chocolate, melted
- colourful card for the labels or pretty paper doilies
- double-sided sticky tape
- Dip the rim of the milk bottles into the melted chocolate, then dip into the sprinkles. Ensure the chocolate is well covered with sprinkles. Leave them to dry.
- Trace a cup to make a large circle of card. Use double-sided sticky tape to attach the card to the bottle. Tie pretty twine around the bottle.
- Add a straw and they are ready for party time. Add plain or flavoured milk or juice of your choice.
- These bottles can be used again and again. You’ll find the double-sided sticky tape just peels off and you can wash the bottles as usual.
Here I used a flower-shape holepunch to create an extra layer of colour on the label. I labelled each bottle with a child’s name so there was no confusion about whose was whose (and no germ swapping!). I also used an extra long piece of twine to wrap around the bottle a couple of times for a fun touch.
If your party guests will be younger than three I’d suggest using mini milk bottles with lids. In this case, you’ll need to forgo the chocolate on the bottles or the lids won’t fit on. You can still decorate your heart out with fun labels.
