The kids loved this one over the rainy weekend, but I think they loved making the mess the most. We painted the bottled caps, once, twice, three times and they couldn’t wait for the paint to dry so guess what? Sticky painted fingers poked and rubbed, smudged paint everywhere. It isn’t even washable!
It was ok though, I spread newspaper everywhere in preparation of those sticky smudging little fingers. The only place the paint got was the work space and all over their art clothes. All is well 🙂
These are fun as you can do pretty much anything you want, just be creative, and let the kids come up with their own designs!
Bottle caps, different sizes, any will do (make sureyou wash them and rub off the dates if the caps have them)
Craft or fabric paint
Any buttons, yarn, eyes, to make faces or designs
Hot Glue Gun
Cork for the smaller bottle caps
If your using small caps, place the cork in the bottle cap and cut it so the cork is level with the rim of the cap. Hot glue the cork in the cap and set aside to do the others. If your using a bigger cap, you can use a small cap to fit inside, just hot glue around the rims and set into the bigger cap.
