International Delight Bottle Craft

International Delight Bottle Craft

Do you ever wonder where the years have gone? Do you wonder how to capture those memories? I have a favorite time of day and it involves curling up with a cup of tea and my International Delight creamer. I love the Cold Stone Creamery™ Sweet Cream and the French Vanilla but more importantly when I am curled up on a chair with my tea it is what I am doing that makes it so special. I am watching my children. I am just watching and listening and trying to remember every smile, song, dance, and question that they ask. I am trying to remember what it was the last time that I sat down and watched them that tickled my funny bone and pulled at my heart. I know that the memories we make are what make our lives.

I asked my kids what craft should I do. I figured they are often making something out of nothing. We debated what best reflects our family. We thought about what would be fun and cool. We thought about what would bring families together and take care of the Earth and we decided to create a treasure hunt. We are going to show you how to create a treasure bottle using the International Delight bottle. We feel that an “International Delight” is not just creamer but a delight that is international is hearing and seeing children have fun.

Step one: Have a cup of coffee or tea and use the rest of your International Delight Creamer

Step two: Wash your International Delight Bottle

Step three: Find treasures that would fit into your bottle

Step four: Hide your bottle

Step five: Create either a treasure map to reinforce navigational skills or just use verbal cues. You can use a map with images or words. If you chose to give oral instructions help your child by guiding them with directional cues.


  • Take one giant hop to the right
  • Then three small steps to the left
  • Walk to the bottom of the oak tree and look left
  • Then move three bunny hops to the left

This is a great activity for:

Art – Decorating the bottle and drawing their treasure map
Math – Following directions, Giving directions,You could also do estimation of the time to finish the treasure hunt.
Writing – If the child chooses to write the directions to find the treasure. They could also write a special note to place in the bottle.
Reading – This is for the child that will read the instructions aloud.
Science – Hypothesis of what will fit in the bottle or how much the bottle will weight when you are done

Note: You can place an address label and mail your treasure bottle using the Us Postal Service like we have done for our other water bottle crafts.
