Make a sunny flower vase or plant pot

Cut the top off a Sunny D bottle, fill up the base with water and flowers for an instant vase of sunshine. Or half fill the bottle with soil, plant a few seeds and wait for them to grow.

Keep the garden bugs away 

Cut the base and top off a Sunny D bottle. Use the ring that remains to protect a growing plant in the garden from pesky slugs and snails.

Message in a bottle

Write a message on a piece of paper. Send the message to your favourite TV personality, or someone on the other side of the world. Put it in a Sunny D bottle and screw the lid back on tightly. Launch the bottle into the sea or on a river and wait to see if you get a reply!

Sunny D paper weight 

Fill a Sunny D bottle with small stones, gravel or sand and put the lid back on. It makes a handy paperweight or door stop. Add a little funshine to your room!

Bird Feeder

Cut small holes in the side of a Sunny D bottle using a sharp knife, or pointed object. Fill the bottle with bird feed which you can buy in a supermarket. Tie string round the neck of the bottle and hang it from a window ledge or tree. This will provide food for birds all year round.

Sunshine Piggy Bank to look after the pennies

Get the sunshine feeling when you save. Enjoy a bottle of fruity Sunny D then cut a slot in the side and use it as a piggy bank to save coins.

Sunny D Racing Car
