How to turn a water bottle into an explosion of fun. This little water bottle party trick will make you the most popular guest PLUS provide a distraction so you can eat all the hamburgers.
Today is Friday. People don’t like Fridays.
They think they are icky because it means the long, boring weekend is ahead of them. They’re going to have to sleep in, stay up late and ignore the growing mound of laundry so they have time to not do laundry.
Every 7 days it’s the same thing over again.
So I have for you something to nix the ick.
I don’t buy bottled water anymore, I haven’t for years and years, but if I come across a bottle or have to buy one for some reason I like to reuse it. The first way I reuse plastic water bottles for is making my homemade fly traps for outside (if you haven’t seen how great this fly trap works you need to read this post).
The second thing I do with them is turn them into a party trick. Sometimes it’s a party for one, with just me in my backyard but still – nothing makes a party for one fun like rocketing the lid off of a water bottle.
You can pull this trick out poolside, in the office, at the campsite, bar mitzvah or BBQ.
Make the Cap Shoot off a Water Bottle
All you need is a plastic water bottle.
- Put the lid on the water bottle but not tightly. Just so that it stays on.
- Twist the bottom of the water bottle like you’re twisting the link in a sausage.
- When you can’t twist the bottom anymore, and all the air in the bottle is forced upwards, flick the cap with your thumb*.
- The cap will shoot off from all the air pressure inside.
*Make sure the water bottle is pointing away from you, everyone else, windows, glass doors, animals etc. etc. because this thing goes FLYING.
(now you know why as a single woman I have so much laundry)
You are now fully prepared to entertain and delight anyone you come across this weekend. Don’t worry, before you know it, it’ll be Monday again and you’ll be able to ignore the laundry without any guilt.
