Recycled Lid Bugs and Bug Houses

"Crafternoon" boredom buster for the kids. We saved the lids from water bottles and soda-which should be removed for recycling, in case you didn't know this already. We hot glued two lids together to create play "Buggies" for "Bugville". My children came up with this idea! They glued eyeballs and even antennae pipe cleaners. They customized each bug with paint and made bug houses out of large dish detergent tab bottles and some recycled Easter grass. Great fun and creativity.

This is great. It is good to see children getting into the recycling act, and having fun at the same time. Well done.

And if you have more caps and lids than you need for crafting, you can recycle the rest with Aveda. They have started a program to recycle hard plastic lids and bottle caps.

Great going with your kids!

My granddaughter and I are saving the lids from the milk jugs to decide what craft we can do for the fair. We already decided she could paint or use marker and we would have a checker board game. This is a cute idea for sending to her class!
