Add a few special tokens of summer to kids' wish-you-were-here vacation greetings with this alternative to plain-old postcards.

What you'll need

  • Plastic bottle
  • Shells, flowers or other found treasures
  • Address label

How to make it

  1. Stuff rolled notes and letters into an empty plastic bottle, along with shells, flowers, or other tiny treasures.

  2. Seal the bottle tightly and stick on an address label, then take it to the local post office to ensure that it gets the proper postage (ours cost $1.17 to mail).
