This is a more complex project, but it is well worth the effort. All you need is an old lampshade, some recycled plastic bottles, a mod podge, and a hot glue gun.

Let them dry and then glue the bottoms of the bottles to the outside of the lampshade. Finally, screw in a light bulb and enjoy your new recycled plastic bottle lamp!

3. ROCKET PIGGY BANK

All you need to do is cut out pieces from an empty plastic milk bottle then use scissors or your marker pen to decorate them any way that suits YOU best!. The possibilities are endless so go ahead – Have some creative inspiration today!!

4. HALLOWEEN MILK JUG GHOSTS

The blood-curdling sounds of Halloween are just around the corner and we have a perfect craft for you! All it takes is some decorative mini lights, empty milk jugs (or other large containers), rocks & pencils. You’ll also need a sharpie marker if your goal is to make this into an actual decoration instead of just something small that goes on top like I did mine with paint because there’s no way my little ones would be able to do all those intricate details themselves.

5. PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE FLOWERS

Glam flowers are the perfect project to make with your kids this summer. All you need is some colourful plastic water bottles, a glue gun, and paper for them! The result looks great – even preschoolers can tackle this easy art class together as long as they have a little assistance from an adult in guiding their fingers through each step of sticking on petals etc.

6. BOTTLE PENGUINS

Penguin crafting is a fun way for kids to get creative and feel like they’re in control. All you need are some basic art supplies, paired with cotton balls placed inside recycled bottles!

7. MILK JUG TOSS

What’s better than one toy? Two! Have your child make two different kinds of toys, like this example where they attached pom-poms or Wiffle balls to milk jugs. It doesn’t even need paint – just cut performed pieces for each object then let them plagiarize in oz zero!!

8. SODA BOTTLE FLOWER PRINTS

The bottom of a soda bottle is similar in shape to the perfect flower. You can make your own by painting it with any colour paint and then cutting out pieces from old magazines or newspapers for petals, which will stick better than anything else!

9. PAPER TOWEL ROLL GHOST

This is an easy and fun way to make a ghost with your kids. All you need is an old paper towel roll, some white paint, and black markers. Paint the paper towel roll white and then let your kids draw on the eyes and mouth. You can also add other details like a bowtie or scarf. These ghosts are perfect for decorating your home for Halloween!
