Bottle Cap Art Project
Here is another way to get the kids interested in crafting with recycled materials. Portland, Oregon contest winners, Elin and James’ mom writes “My son and daughter are very creative and artistic. I collected the bottle caps since we cannot put them in the recycle bin. My kids loved all of the different sizes and colors, so I suggested that they can use these to make some art. I bought a big frame at a garage sale for this project. They came up with the very creative idea of making an apple tree, bee and a flower. Their next project theme will be “under the sea”.
