Message In A Bottle

**Welcome to Love In Color! Where you help to color your world into a brighter and better place. Here is where I will post Love In Color challenges. These challenges will be fun and creative ideas that you can do with your kids (or by yourself!) to bring smiles, joy, and encouragement to your neighborhood and the rest of your world. Make sure you post your Love In Color challenges on social media (I myself am a Instagram-aholic. It’s a word.) and tag me/hash tag #colorsaremagic #projectloveincolor. I can’t wait to see all the magic you bring and may even repost your photos on my blog. Happy coloring!!**


I have always loved the idea of finding a message in a bottle. I grew up in Alaska and spent a good majority of my childhood near water or on a boat. I mean, maybe there really wasn’t as much of a chance of me finding a message in a bottle on the Kenai River– but gosh is it stunning! Just look at those brilliant colors!! Mmmmhmmm.


Now I live in a concrete jungle. Oh, Manhattan… how I love thee. I have decided to give all my fellow New Yorkers a chance at having the joy of finding a message in a bottle. I challenge you to do the same for your neighbors.

What you will need:

– Bottle (I bought a couple packs of blank Message In A Bottle packs from Michaels and they worked wonderfully. You can of course use whatever you’d like. I liked these as they won’t shatter.)

– Paper

– Pen

-Colors (crayons, colored pencils, makers, whatever strikes your fancy)

– Knick-knacks for your bottle (optional)

Now that you have what you need let your imagination run wild! I made 12 bottles. I stuffed them with different things. Some had poems. Some had chalk and a challenge to make the world a brighter and better place. Some of them has tiny toy dragons with a notes that said said they grant wishes and the ridiculous things their diets consist of. I put them all in my bag and carried them around Manhattan and placed them where I thought they were meant to be. So fun. Your kids will love hiding the beautiful messages and gifts that they have made and stuffed into their bottles. Make a night of it. Maybe go out for dinner as a family and on your way home stop along the way and hide your bottles.

Happy hiding! XOXO
