This cup is used for ritual hand washing before eating bread or a meal. (Truthfully, you could also use it to water your spring flowers!)

You will need: 

Washed and dried plastic milk or juice bottle or carton
Scissors or utility knife
Clear packaging tape
Old magazines 


1. Cut the top off of the bottle or carton. 

2. Cut out images of water, or blue things, from magazines. 

3. Tape them on to the bottle, making sure to cover the entire surface with tape.

4. Fold some tape over the top edges since they may be sharp from being cut.
