Recycle!

Recycling ideas for small plastic bottles.

Not really suitable for young children to make but they will learn a lot from watching and will love the little doll.

Plastic bottles make really good plant holders. Use a skewer to make a small hole in the bottom for drainage.

The doll was an after thought when I was faced with five or six bottle tops! It’s made in the same way with the addition of a polystyrene ball for the head. The tops of bottles also make good funnels and can be used as slow watering devices for the garden if you drill a very tiny hole in the cap.
