Personalized Water Bottles

My kids were off track the last three weeks and it gave me a small glimpse of what summer is going to be like. Now, that they are back in school, I have 5 weeks to really get ready for summer vacation. There are several things that will take some time to get ready, but there was one problem I was able to quickly fix.
No matter how many clean cups we had in the morning, by night time, every single one was dirty.  I watched as the kids would get a drink of water, throw the cup in the sink, and come back 10 minutes later for another drink (in another clean cup). Last week when I was at Walmart, I found some water bottles for a buck. They were perfect!
Since they only had green left, I needed some way to customize them. So, I added each kid's name in vinyl in their favorite color.
Now, they each have their own personalized water bottle.
And there are still clean cups left when I go to bed!
Isn't that a fun summer decal on the bucket?
Come back tomorrow for the free file to make your own.
What are you doing to get ready for summer?

Love these and the bucket. I actually bought some tiny ones for little kids and am going to vinyl the kids names on them for my son's birthday party next month.
