We throw away thousands of plastic bottles every day. Here’s an opportunity to give them a second life and teach children the importance of recycling at the same time.
SuppliesEmpty plastic bottles and containers (i.e. water bottles or 2 liter soda bottles)
Elmer’s Squeeze ’n Brush
Elmer’s Washable School Glue Gel
Paper plates etc.
Have each student decide on an animal they would like to create and gather the supplies needed to create that animal. It can even be an animal of their own creation.

Use a plastic bottle or similar type of container for the animal’s body
Encourage the students to use creativity and details in their decoration
Set animals aside to dry
