We are on holiday at the moment but before we came off we were working on recycling some of the bottles we had collected into these fantastic fish.
First we covered the bottle with a layer of newspaper and a layer of paper towel. Then we added another layer of tissue paper and glue to make them really colourful. We made eyes by taping on some recycled bottle tops. We also covered these with tissue. Finally, we made tails and fins from coloured card and added some sparkles. We have also added a hook and some string so we can hang them up. Don’t they look fantastic?
On Friday we made some tealight holders by re-using glass jars we had been collecting. We covered them with squares of tissue paper and a thin layer of watered down glue. We added some sequin sparkles around the top to make them look even more special. Keep looking out for more recycled art over the coming weeks!
This Superstar liked them so much she went home and made her own!
Today we brainstormed what rubbish is and made a class mind map. We will be using our mind map to ask questions and research what really is rubbish and what we can do to reduce, re-use, recycle and compost our waste.
