One way we can help the environment is by reducing the amount of plastic that we use in everyday life. However, if you already have plastic in your house, here are some fun crafts to reuse those plastics!
Gather your supplies
- Plastic bottle
- Construction paper
- Decorating supplies
- Googly eyes
Select the bottle shape you want and remove the label from the bottle using warm soap and water
Select the color construction paper you want
Wrap the paper around the bottle and tape it down
If the paper doesn’t cover the whole bottle, use paint to cover the rest of it
Using orange construction paper cut out the penguin’s feet and beak
Using white construction paper, create the belly of the penguin
Using black construction paper, create the wings
Start assembling your penguin!
Cut a slit on the bottle where you want the money to be deposited in (we made ours where the beak of the penguin will be)
- Be careful! Ask an adult for help.
- Make sure the opening is big enough where a coin can fit in
Finish assembling your penguin
Attach the eyes
Enjoy your penguin bank! Try making other animals too!
