This is a simple activity to make ten green bottles that older children can use whilst singing the song.
You will need:
- Green paint
- Blue tac or velcro
- Laminator and laminating sheets
Cut ten bottle shapes out of the card. Paint the bottles on both sides using the green paint. Once dry you could laminate the bottles if you wish, to make them last longer. Either attach velcro or blue tac to the back of the bottles and stick them to the wall. During group singing time the children can use the bottles whilst singing the song “ten green bottles” and each time a “bottle should accidently fall” a child can be chosen to remove a bottle off the wall. Then as a group the children can count the remaining bottles on the wall.
