Sometimes the most common household objects can provide the most amusement for kids, like this simple DIY bottle toy kit.

The Solar-Powered PET Bottle Car kit supplies kids with a set of wheels and all of the other components needed to assemble the toy vehicle—minus a plastic bottle, which is not hard to come by. Once everything has been pieced together, the bottle car should be able to run for about two hours continuously.

This remote control toy is useful for teaching kids about solar power, electronics, as well as the potential to repurpose household items for creating more of their own toys. While this toy kit provides plenty of resources for play and education, there's also ample room for kids to unleash their creativity by further customizing the toy bottle car.
