This is like the old-fashioned ship-in-a-bottle craft, but with a plastic soda bottle and it does NOT have to be a ship or a boat inside this bottle. Everyone will be so confused as how you got all the objects inside the bottle...but here is the trick. He won't be able to figure out how you got a big scene inside such a little bottle. Clean out a used soda bottle. Then you can take the label off with some warm soapy water. Then thoroughly dry the bottle off. Here is the trick...cut an oval out of the side of your soda bottle. Then you sshould take this cut-out plastic oval and gently trace it onto a strong piece of cardboard. Then, make sure that your scene is created within this oval so that the bottle can fit on top of it. Now is the fun part...find a bunch of miniature objects that you want in your scene...such as little people and a little house...maybe a little car...whatever you want. You can even create the scene yourself out of clay, cardboard, paper, or whatever else you are good at crafting things with. Then paste the soda boattle around the scene and let it dry thoroughly.
