DIY Roller Derby!

As a stay at home mom, I am always trying to find ways to entertain Eli. Lately he has been getting a kick out of pushing things down the hall, so I thought this little project would be a perfect toy for him. I had a lot of fun picking out the items, and it was super cheap and easy to make. Here is how you can make your very own roller derby!




(2) 2 Liter bottles of soda

Goo Gone (optional)

Exacto knife & sharp scissors

Duck tape

Odds & ends for filling


1. Empty and rinse the soda bottles. Peel away the label and remove extra residue with Goo Gone. Thoroughly wash the bottles with soap and water.



2. Cut each bottle in half by piercing with an exacto knife, then completing the cut with scissors. Keep the two ends.



3. Fill one bottle with anything you can find! I decided to make mine “dinosaur” themed, so I put an assortment of green things: shiny pieces of ribbon, beads, buttons, pom poms, and bells.



4. Line up the two openings of the bottles and secure with duck tape. I did this twice to make it extra durable. You can find a variety of colorful and patterned duck tape rolls at craft stores.



5. Give it to your little one and watch them race and roll!

    This is stinking adorable. I now want a baby just so I can make this project. I also love that it’s ALL green. :) I love you sissy!
