Recycled Animal Face Pencil Case - bottle with pencils insideSimple materials plus a creative mind is a great combination for making this project. A plastic bottle has the most use when it comes to recycling. You can create anything useful out of plastic bottles. Here's one simple project that I taught my child which can be a good help to develop his creativity, imagination, and organizing skills.



  • colored craft paper (assorted)
  • plastic bottle (any size)
  • scissors/cutter
  • pencil
  • pens or markers (preferably black)
  • glue
  • double sided tape
  • accessories (optional)
