Kicking tees are a small, but important, part of football, soccer and rugby. If you are involved in any one of these sports, you know that during practice, you never can have enough kicking tees. Here is your opportunity to make some creative kicking tees from some rather ordinary items while recycling at the same time. These kicking tees are made from two different sizes of plastic soda bottles and some duct tape. Making kicking tees together would be a great team-building project for youth teams.

Making Rugby Tees

Wash and dry a 2-liter soda bottle.

Measure with a ruler and mark 9 inches from the bottom of the bottle with a permanent marker.

Measure and mark with a ruler, 4.5 inches on the opposite side of the bottle from the 9-inch mark. Draw a line that connects the marks; one end will higher.

Cut on the line with either scissors or a craft knife.

Cover the cut edges of the bottle with duct tape to prevent accidental cuts or scrapes.

Making Football Tees

Wash and dry a 16-ounce soda or water bottle.

Measure with a ruler and mark 5 inches from the bottom of the bottle with a permanent marker. Measure and mark several places around the bottle. Contact the marks to make a line.

Cut on the line.

Cover the cut edges of the bottle with duct tape to prevent accidental cuts and scrapes.

Turn the new kicking tee upside down to use.
