Recycled bottles to keep crayon

Recycled bottles to keep crayon
A perfect way to recycle and reuse containers that are very useful around the house. We made a place to keep crayons. This activity can be done with any other type of container or tin. 

2 litre pop bottle
bias tape or cloth
glue
white out or chalk ink
scissors

Poke a hole then using a sharp scissor with a help of an adult cut the bottle, cut at any point depending on how deep you want the final product to be. Don't use the scissors that are used for cutting cloth.

Measure the diameter of the bottle then cut a piece of cloth with 1 1/2" width and use as bias tape or use a store bias tape. Cut the bias tape at least 1/2" more so it would over lap.

Use glue and paste the bias tape around the bottle. This is decorative and also prevents cuts when putting the hand into the bottle. Can use liquid paper or chalk ink pens to decorate the outside of the container.

  2. What a great idea! I take a lot of my recycled bottles and boxes to the local children's Explora museum. They are used in the art area for the kids to make stuff with. It's fun to watch a cereal box get transformed into a hat or something. -:)
