Easy Fun Piggy Bank

So I'm guilty of only having one piggy bank for all four of my kids. And then since it had a big hole at the bottom, it turned out to be a pretty useless. So to right all our child savings wrongs, I've decided to turn some juice containers into piggy banks. I have yet to do all four bottles since we still need to drink through 3 more bottles but here's the idea.

The hardest part was making a hole in the cap. I used an exacto knife, because I didn't think a knife would be strong enough. If you don't have one you can just use a knife or scissors to cut the bottle itself. So now its plain, but what my idea is, let the kids paint it with either craft paint (which I don't have, so we will use acryllic paints) this way its that much more special for them. Kids love looking at their own creations!
I can't wait to see the kids paint these!
